Barry Wilson artist information:
Barry Wilson trained at the Camberwell School of Art and was taught by influential artists such as Bruce Mclean, and Jock Mcfadden .
“My aim with this set of pictures has been to emulate a faint image in an antique mirror or a creased and faded much-loved photo. I believe the delicate, fragile beauty of the gold leaf finish belies the somewhat brutal techniques I employ. These include using industrial spray guns, scouring pads and water jets, scrubbing back the layers of paint to reveal the gold leaf base which seems to give the structure/framework of the painting. I believe the result is a vibrant and edgy captured moment; contemporary and beautiful.”
– Barry Wilson, Artist
