Colin Wilson Art

Originally from Linlithgow but now living in Meadowbank, 25-year-old Wilson has been hailed as one to watch after being chosen to exhibit in the Royal Scottish Academy’s New Contemporaries exhibition 2011. In his series of still lives he explores the interaction of visual planes and the relationship between two conflicting styles of painting, abstract and realism. Fuelled by a love of cookery and all things food, these small scale paintings present the traditional subject of fruit and vegetables shown against a backdrop of colour and abstract shapes.
