    Like Making T-Shirts from Wood (ft. James "RONG" Williams III) | Ep. 203

    James is a Virginia-bred, self-taught multidisciplinary artist based in Atlanta. Over the years, Williams has operated within multiple disciplines but is currently focused on strengthening his studio furniture and sculpture practice. 

    Before honing in on his current practice, Williams explored multiple fields including garment construction, activation design, and art direction. He prides himself on intentionally resisting a linear curriculum, in many ways, this has aided him in developing a unique approach to his work. 

    Williams’ work explores the intersections of identity, space, and emotional health. Ultimately, he strives to produce works that serve as communal sites for inner and collective dialogue that encourage abstract thinking, expression, and liberation.

    The good news is that curation and focus is an important part of the puzzle. Yet, there's much to be said on the topic of consuming things we don't care for at all.
