We see and feel parts of ourselves when we look at inanimate objects similar to our own image. As Judith painted them, she made up their personalities, positioned them, and imagined "their stories" with hopes the viewer will do the same . Influenced by Marcel Duchamp, who stretched the idea of everyday objects to new concepts, Williams created imaginary realms using shoes. The shape of the shoe and the function of a shoe presented symbols or metaphors to view it with new perspectives. Seeing below the literal surface is what appeals to her. Her resulting art pieces are then creatively mounted for hanging.
