Name: Renae Williams
Current Location: New York
Medium of Work: I play with poems to create entertainment, melody, and symphony, while caricaturing societies most precious commodities and sinful attributes.
I spend my days strolling through New York, with an open heart, seeing eyes, inspired mind and readied notebook. My flamboyance is a way for me to pretend not to care what people think. Deep down however, opinions matter. Opinions matter, as a persons thoughts are gifts. Feedback makes me stronger, accelerates growth and uncovers the motivation to keep pushing through the ever-present glances of judgment.
Individual expression allows for a world to gain insight into your soul, without having to engage through anything more than awe or perplexity.
You may spy me skate boarding down Park Ave in an attire describable as”hippy sheik” on my good days and wandering vagrant on my bad. If found muttering incoherently while adorning an eclectic mix of appendages, just know… I do care what you think. Your expressions, aversion of eyes and any form of communicative feedback is noted and briefly pondered. It is noted in you, then society, then humanity. Remember, a single smile can live for ever through contagion. I relish light and darkness. We cannot grow without pain, we cannot live without light.
I am a catch and release kinda gal. Spiders are cupped then ousted, mice are boxed then booted (relocated), shitting ducks are shooed, people are understood. I want my words, images and expressions to spark reflection in others. I will be gracious if you take the time to reflect on my art. If your reflections yield a deep yearning to ask questions, alter habits or pursue dreams then it is a true honor to have touched your hearts.
My love for words begins with the way they sounds. How melodies can be constructed through mere conversation. How the most vulgar of societies injustice can be presented through a rhythmical mode to enthrall both the literary community and housewives alike.
I will give you society through the perspective of a revolutionist. One that will deconstruct our own destructions and rebuild them into poems, passages or melodies that scream truth, bolsters passion and inspires change.
