10/02/2011 Perspectives with John Wilson

I like to give a flavour for each year. It is some sort of a theme to think about through the year, to give it enough time, to hopefully discover some interesting thoughts in the process. 2010 has been a brilliant and pushing boundaries year with the flavour "obsession and exploration". It leaded me to my 2011 theme "Perspectives" which gave me a special echo to John Wilson work.

Last summer, I discovered John Wilson work in an art gallery in San Fransisco. Few weeks ago, I saw another piece at a preivew of the London Art Fair which gives me the privilege to share with friends the unique exoerience of Paul Wilson work. Few evenings ago, I was walking in near cover garden when I came across once again with a Paul Wilson painting, this time in a Artica gallery.

John Wilson is one of this artist who brought interactivity to his art from his interest for perspective and maybe more generally space. After, a really interesting serie of painting about kids in the world of art, Paul Wilson has continu his exploration of space bringing new shapes for his painting so that the viewer reach a real perception of perpective, like if the painting was continuing 5 meters inside the walk while moving around it thanks to clever perspective tricks. It is just like 3D in the cinemas but without headhache and with a feeling of freedom of exploration, for me John Wilson painting's demonstrate how immatute this stereoscopic movie technologies remains.

With its interactivity and its desire for exploration, John Wilson's work is, for me, another step toward the use of interactive rendering as a new media for proper art.
