Figure Study Mougins 3, 2015
Oil on canvas
Signed by the artist
92 x 92 cm
Oliver Wilson's paintings offer an insight into a dreamlike world using models in and around pools to portray figure studies in a contemporary setting. He uses photography to capture the images initially, thus enabling the viewer to see refractions of flesh and fabric under the water.
The subjects have a distortion bordering on abstraction whilst maintaining a subtle photographic realism. The titles of recent works reflect the setting of the scenes in the Greek isles and also evoke the mythologies of the ancient sea gods and nymphs.
