Wilson’s work, in its abundant colour, complexity of form and aesthetic pleasure, belies – or perhaps defies –
his intention. No more than the sea sets out to be beautiful does he seek to represent its beauty or mystery.
Instead, he follows rigorous mathematical formulae derived from his Airforce apprenticeship:
eg height x length x amplitude = waveform.
The resulting works – not of chance, but of underlying physical principles – deliver a parallel pleasure to that offered by nature.
Throughout a career spanning more than 50 years, Wilson’s work has been driven by this agenda. The depth, consistency and development of his enquiry is breathtaking: we show here only selection of works from 2000 – 2010.
