Bedwyr Williams: Instagram Drawings

End Date: 31/08/2020

“Criticism, satire, portraiture – they all spring from pointed observations like the ones in the Welsh artist Bedwyr Williams’s instagram cartoons. Illustrating handwritten captions with quick ink-and-brush drawings, Mr Williams conjures distinctive art-world characters in revealing moments. Many of his takes are pretty cutting, but there’s something like love, too, in just how particular, and whimsical they can get.”
_ Will Heinrich, New York Times, April 2020

Southard Reid is pleased to present a selection of Bedwyr Williams’ recent pen and ink drawings. Made on square sheets of paper presented in individual or composite format, the drawings double as material for his Instagram feed, illustrating art and wider world types, relationships and behaviours in a stream of observational commentary.
