Chipwood and Choppers

Gwyn Williams’ new series of work is based on his dreams and interest in the old American way of life.

Williams searched internet auction sites for photographs and archive images that depict archetypal scenes of Americana: men and women dressed up as cowboys in a summer fair; a couple sat in a canoe on a vast blue lake surrounded by pine trees; snapshots that appear to have been taken directly from a family holiday.

Unedited and untouched, Williams juxtaposes these strangely nostalgic images with sections of chipwood wallpaper, a material which, for him, evokes memories of his childhood home in North Wales and days spent fantasising about the ‘American Dream’.
