Los Angeles painter Patrick Wilson opens an installation of new paintings at Brian Gross Fine Art on Thursday, September 9th, with a reception for the artist from 5:30-7:30 pm. The exhibition will continue through October 16th.
In his fifth exhibition with Brian Gross, the artist's new paintings represent a departure from his abstractly narrative urbanscapes. Known for his perfectly luminous color fields that subtly reveal underpainting, Wilson continues to pull meticulous layers of semi-transparent paint across the canvas in these reductive color abstractions. The new works are distinguished by their large vertical format, which is divided horizontally into flat and luminous color areas to explore notions of light, space and composition.
The pristine surfaces engage the viewer with their rich color fields in complex tones of brown, grey, white or orange. Wilson, who is heavily inspired by his immediate surroundings, produces glowing and expansive canvases that underscore their distinctly abstract, non-objective style with a sense of time and place.
Patrick Wilson was born in Redding, CA in 1970. He received his B.A. from the University of California at Davis in 1993 and his M.F.A. from the Claremont Graduate School in 1995. Wilson has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in California, New York and Washington D.C. His work is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Long Beach Museum of Art, The Edythe and Eli Broad Collection, Los Aneles, Capital Group, Inc., Los Angeles, and Creative Artists Agency, Beverly Hills.
