Original painting in oil on canvas.
This work is part of a series of paintings I have been working on in collaboration with a food writer. We have been exploring places to eat and drink in and around Peckham and Camberwell in South East London where we live and the images from those reviews, normally shared via social media have instead been rendered as a full scale oil paintings. Hopefully turning the transient into something more permanent.
Torie Wilkinson's work displays an expert handling and understanding of paint as a medium. She captures glimpses of colour and light in the often grey city- a reminder that beauty can be found everywhere. Wilkinson attributes order to the urban jungle by finding repetition and stillness, and a sense of the absurd, in otherwise hectic spaces.
