About Ossie Williams

Ossie Williams is a St Lucian-born artist whose work is an intimate exploration of identity, memory, longing, and the intersectionality between the Afro-Carribean culture, its community, religion, and queerness.

Through photography, film, and screenprints, Williams documents their formative experiences within the Caribbean; images come alive detailing the complexities of yearning for intimacy and a sense of belonging. Here, the central theme is the construction of Otherness within the Afro-Caribbean community and its relationship to religious conservatism, hyper-masculinity, and sexuality.

In 2023 the artist was selected as an awardee of the second edition of the LOEWE FOUNDATION / Studio Voltaire Award.
