Randy Williams is a visual artist and educator, most recently working at Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York as the Professor of Studio and Art Education. Williams uses art cathartically as a means of confronting his own experiences in life as a Black American.

On his Untitled Music Series 2/3:
At the time that this painting was painted, my main aesthetic concern was defining the relationship between the visual arts and music. My intention at the time was not to illustrate music with visual forms, but to have the visual forms function as their own musical structures. In essence what I wanted to do in this painting and other paintings in the ‘Untitled Music Series’ was to influence the eyes of the viewer to hear   images, visual images in the same manner that ears are capable of hearing music and sounds.”
