Wilson draws inspiration from the beautiful landscapes of Wiltshire, creating a visual diary that captures how the dominant colours of the fields change with the seasons and contrast with the skies. His paintings are abstract journeys of discovery as he explores how colours interact with each other within the confines and parameters of a painting, using the space and borders of the surface. He often references pre-historic sites in the area such as Silbury Hill, absorbed by its majesty and changing form infused by daylight or at dusk. His works can be described as portraits of a landscape over time, in which colour, shape and edge conspire to form the contours of a character, revealed by the natural light of day.
Wilson was born in the UK and lives and works in Hampshire. He has spent over 20 years observing the landscape in Wiltshire as his family have a home near Marlborough.
