Graham Wilson’s (b. 1987 lives and works in New York) patchwork canvases are a deconstruction of the tradition of painting, perceived by Wilson as a tired medium. The artist states, “Using ideas that stem from existentialism, my practice is constantly vacillating and circulating, ridding paintings of their deliberate aspects, and repurposing them into new forms. In this format the paintings acquire a life of their own, containing a past, a present, and possible future.”
