 “The mood is transformed by the changing light across the gold and acrylic” John Sargeant Barry Wilson trained at the Camberwell School of Art and was taught by influential artists such as Bruce Mclean, Cornelia Parker, Jock Mcfadden and Ian Mckeever. “The aim of my paintings 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 gold leaf and the fresh, translucent quality of Acrylic paint 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’s highly distinctive paintings have been exhibited in major museum and galleries worldwide with international acclaim, winning the celebrated Saatchi award in 2012.
