Les Minimas, The Desperate Man, The Girl with the Pearl Earring, the Mona Lisa — they all hold our gaze from within the painting.

Williams critiques racial history and contemporary societal norms through the discomfort that comes from holding a Black woman’s gaze, especially one in a posture that indicates power and pride.
