Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to present new works on paper by Patrick Wilson. Presented in the exhibition are selected pieces from Suite for Mount Washington, which consists of 49 unique gouache prints on Rives BFK paper. Named for the Los Angeles neighborhood the artist lives in, the body of work is the result of his collaboration with friend Jorge Pardos master printer, Christian Zickler.
The silk-screening process allowed the artist to create a complex group of interrelated paintings that expand his studio painting practice. By removing the element of physically executing the works, he was free to focus exclusively on the formal and conceptual relationships that stemmed from a simple alphabet of shapes and colors and grew into a complex visual experience. Less concerned with issues of surface and gesture, Wilson explores the relationships between color and shape in a more layered configuration where the juxtaposition of elements achieves surprising and finely syncopated color chords.
Patrick Wilson received his MFA from Claremont Graduate School. He has shown in a two-person exhibition at Claremont Graduate University Museum, Claremont, CA, and he has been included in group exhibitions at the Riverside Art Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum, the Long Beach Museum, at the Mount San Antonio College, Walnut. His work is in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Long Beach Museum of Art, the SunAmerica and KB Homes Collections, Los Angeles, the Capital Group Inc., Los Angeles, the Creative Artists Agency, Los Angeles, the Progressive Corporation, Mayfield Village, and the Radio Shack Collection, Dallas, Texas.
