Made over the last few years, J. Wilson’s A Block Of Flats And Other Places is a watercolour and gauche series of views encountered by the artist around his block of flats. These densely detailed works on paper pay tribute to the beauty of the everyday, amongst other things.
“Josh Wilson’s work starts with “i” (an imaginary number), its focus is 360o, its location is (0,0) i.e. Thornbury, and its conclusion saturated with emotion. To see the world from the perspective of a clothesline, or at street level, or thru a window is to look at the world afresh and new. The past is here, ditto the present, and the future seems to bear down on all these scenes with an unforgiving cruelty.” TT.O
