REVEALING

PATRICK WILSON's acrylic on canvas paintings illuminate his sophisticated layering of color and light. His work can incorporate up to five different surfaces into one painting, resulting in a myriad of translucent layers, tonal shifts, and blurring color fields. His meticulous paintings wed color to structured shapes in a nearly sculptural method he describes as “building” as much as painting. Curator Kristina Newhouse insightfully points out that it his visual “drift” of light, space, color, time and place related to everyday living that guides Patrick Wilson’s compositional choices.
