Art & Artists at The Jasper: Fletcher Williams III
About the artist:
Fletcher Williams III is an interdisciplinary artist based in Charleston, South Carolina. His theoretical and conceptual art-making practice is rooted in southern vernacular. Williams studied drawing, painting, printmaking, graphic design and sculpture at The Cooper Union, where he received a BFA in 2010.
While the core of Williams’ practice focused on multimedia object making and installations, a significant portion of his practice was dedicated to studying ritual theory through the lenses of anthropology and sociology. These concepts play an important role in his later works. Williams lives and works in North Charleston, South Carolina.
