DAVID WILSON
David Wilson grew up on the West Coast of British Columbia and has called Vancouver his home for nearly 25 years. Although the port city of Vancouver acts as his primary source of inspiration he often seeks out additional inspiration found within the cities and other locals he visits. His portrayals of urban centres invariably offer up his perceptions of the relationships between people and structures and the geography they inhabit and interact with. Wilson studied at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design but is primarily a self-taught painter. My cityscapes are meant to depict a cycle of addition and subtraction, renewal and decay. The fragility of life, of existence, is what I intend to encapsulate within my paintings. The deconstructed paintings (works on corrugated board) are meant to act as an extension of the idea of fragility. These works are created with the same amount of care and craftsmanship as works on canvas but are created on what is largely considered a disposable material. Something that is not designed to last forever and is meant to serve a limited purpose is suddenly assigned value when paint is purposely applied to its surface. What is disposable is transformed into something precious and an effort is made to sustain its whole-ness. It's a concept intended to parallel what it means to be human, to experience life within all its messiness to the fullest extent possible while doing so with purpose. There is a certain sense of irony in these works in that, at times, they are considered less valuable than works on canvas due to the archival nature canvas provides. However, I believe the works on corrugated board hold a similar or, at times, greater intrinsic value solely because these works are representational of something greater than the sum of their parts. Ultimately, the works on canvas and works on corrugated board are meant to support each other, offering up a singularly creative process that is readily accessible to the viewer on many different levels.
