Sam Wood Wilson

Seattle, WA

"Future Classic"
The work of Sam Wood Wilson is a catalogue of information that creates a process based dialog between digital technologies, commercial production techniques, and analog painting. It defines the intersection of digital (culture, software, fabrication) and analog (painting, sketching, ideation) practices while documenting the effect of each discipline on the other in a digitally based visual culture. Each composition filters between physical and digital processes by utilizing identities associated with each realm before manifesting as a composition representing both worlds we simultaneously occupy. The paintings begin to reflect a hybrid understanding of the world we currently exist in. The result is an abstract image that depicts recognizable tropes, graphic effects, and digital components to convey the understanding of a world between the digital and physical realms.

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"My work doesn't really come to life till I have the drawing on the panel. All of my color choices are spontaneous and tend to be occuring in real time as I paint."

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I want people to stop and think! To me if someone stops and wonders what the heck is going on with this painting, it's a success. There is way too little of that these days as people are so often looking down in the real world at their devices."
