Wendy Williams creates installations inspired by the Vikings

Wendy Williams is an installation artist working primarily with paper. The work has a repetitive theme which mimics the lifestyle of a typical worker, doing the same journey into the city day in and day out, seeing the same people while travelling. And continuously repeating the same actions. Some of the wing shaped works contain text – the lyrics of universally known songs.

After exhibiting in Tromso, Norway earlier this year, Wendy began a series of artworks that were influenced by the Norwegian culture. It was during research that she began to find a link between earlier Norwegian settlements - the Vikings, and the area that became eventually known as Leasowe. She is presently artist in Residence at Leasowe Development Trust in Wirral, where her installation of 300 Vikings long boats is on display.
