Richard Wilson

Richard Wilson:

Richard Wilson's sculptures alter the space or objects, as we know it and so encourage us to rethink our attitude and our perspective on things. In his work mostly large surfaces, objects, walls, whole house or houses are involved.His large-scale works give the genre of 'sculpture' new dimensions. He turns,turns, cuts, fills, empties, or discolored, his objects. Since his work of art '20: 50 '(1987) - which consists of a waist-up with motor oil filled chamber and is on permanent display in London - Wilson is one of the leading British artists of his generation. Since 1976, the 58 year old artist had 50 exhibitions around the world and was awarded an honorary doctorate from the 'University of East London'.
