About the Gallery:

Exploring mythologies and monsters, Kenneth Williams work delves into timeless narratives that echo humanity’s collective experiences. These works represents stories of entertainment, lessons found in life, and cautionary tales. Mythologies are enduring dialogue of humanity spanning millennia. They are our actions, reactions, thoughts, hopes, and fears. Monsters can cause us to proceed with caution for self-preservation. They can also have us look internally to confront our demons. They do not exist, yet exist in every culture at every age. This series explores those histories, myths, and monsters.
