"In Swedish, there is a word -- 'Etka' -- which means genuine, the true, the essential quality of things," said Clarence Tillenius, an artist and friend. "Hollis is constantly seeking the essential ingredient, the thing that makes his sculpture live. You feel, in the presence of his sculptures, that here is a man who is concerned only with rendering the essential truth of things."

Experience the artistic legacy of Hollis Williford, from his boyhood home in Texas to his adventures in the wilds.
