“I want to draw attention to issues; I want people to be informed. It’s a scary time. Everything gets integrated into the art, not always consciously. [The paintings] become a refuge. If I have visibility, I have the responsibility to try and change things.”

-Sue Williams in conversation with Carly Gaebe, Art in America, “The Sum of Its Parts: An Interview with Sue Williams”, 14 January 2014
