NEW YORK, NY.- envoy enterprises presents their third solo exhibition of new work by James J. Williams III, Leave a stain. Each element of the show represents a farewell letter. Together they form a set acting as and waiting for the curtain call.

With each work Williams expresses how ritual and objects can be a method of release, even as the person, the place, the self has already said goodbye.

The installation is a series of pleas for acknowledgement as they hover over farewells. Some somber, some bitter, some vicious and vacant. As the viewer moves through the set each piece is a skin shed, a bridge burned. Leave a stain is one last plea for regard and becomes the voice calling back, “Let go.”

James J. Williams III is a Brooklyn native, is an artist, curator and creative director. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, Miami, London, Paris, and Washington DC. Since 2003 James has served as the director and founder of the Thorstein Foundation. His work has been reviewed in Opium Magazine, Art Cal, NY Art Beat, Lapiz, Double Magazine and The New York Times.
