Journey is one of a series of paintings which deal with Williams’s childhood journeying by sea, travelling from one land to another, and appreciating the different ways of life, from the spices of Zanzibar to the engineering feat of the Suez Canal.

Road to Athens #7 – New Dionysus

Concluding that inward desires now hark for a return journey, I travel west back to England equipped with all but 1 member of the fragrance family.

Informed by my experiences in Greece and the acquiring of scented knowledge, I compile one last fragrance from of Dionysus. It is redesigned for English audiences with respect, not spite. As such, a votive offering of wine is created, referencing at once Dionysus’ religious and cultural prowess and his capacity for madness.

Road to Athens #6 – The Thrice Tenth Kingdom

Heading north-east and void of all frivolities it becomes apparent that outer desires removed from travel begin to ensue, and I find myself at a crossroads where such longing needs to be extinguished or embraced.
