This collection is a body of illustrations comprising American editorial commissions since 2014, specialising in contemporary socio-political issues, and Williamson’s 2019 solo exhibition, Untitled/Re-assembled, highlighting his collage based methodology. Through reappropriation and assemblage, using digital and analogue print and collage techniques, Williamson explores the intersections between multiple graphic elements.
