Exuberant colour and movement are typical of Williams work, as are abstracted forms which in this case refer to imagery connected with the culture of the Carib tribes in his native country. Williams said: "The word 'abstract' explains itself. 'Abstract' means 'to take out of'. Therefore, abstraction has a basis. I see abstraction in everything, a waterfall, a flash of lightning - they seem somehow free form. Art that is ritualistic, mystical, is profound... Art with no mystery is nothing. It's just decorative."
