Patrick

Wilson

Patrick Wilson (American, b. 1970) might be called a neo-minimalist, with rectilinear series of canvases - at least at first glance - arranged like objects with an almost sculptural presence on the wall. His monochromatic surfaces, though, actually belie a metaphorically organic process, with layer upon thin layer of acrylic, oil, and dry pigments building to a deep, gentle set of gradients and embedded forms. The artist has defined the sense of movement present in these works as “slow but steady like a glacier.” At some point during the process, the forms coalesce into impressions strong enough to suggest a particular food, place, or object - which becomes the title - in a nod to the artist’s stream-of-consciousness process more than a prescription for the viewer.
