Bumps & Gaps 

When: Oct. 3-22 2011

Minimalism, post-minimalism, and a bit of contemporary art-material recycling combine in the elegant and humorous abstractions of Hadley Williams. Featuring a list of ingredients that includes cashmere, correction tape, pom-poms, cut-up security envelopes, clothing-hanger foam, and bubble wrap, her assemblages comprise fields of repeated elements that are imaginatively altered, implying quirky maps, manuscripts, and gameboards. Williams: "As I interact with objects and substances, the mechanistic (i.e., perfectionist, controlling) part of me is in tension with the bodily, impulsive part. Ideas of perfection contend with ... natural imperfection and unpredictability." "Bumps XIV," "Purple Dots," "Bubbles III," "White Circles," "Olive Circles," and "Map II" walk the Eva Hesse tightrope of anthropomorphized abstraction lightly, without missteps. Artist talk at 4 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 15.Bumps & Gaps runs through Oct. 22 at JohnF.KennedyUniversity (2956 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley). 510-647-2041 or
