Alun William's explores the relationship between the accidental and the historical context looking, for example, at how otherwise 'irrelevant' marks contribute to the character of the place. His recent work involves the appropriation of accidental paintmarks found in specific locations.

These paintmarks become linked to the historical character of location and are then repeated in paintings drawings, and photographs. This injects significance into otherwise unimportant residual marks, daubs and splatters. The different context highlights them as shape and forms readable as figures or considered as abstract paintings.
