Wisz believes portraiture allows her to explore layers of people, ideas of beauty standards and what it is that characterises an individual. Often staring out at you, the figures in her work confront the viewer in a way that shows the vulnerability Wisz wants to achieve. Playing with translucency in her work, background patterns often show through the layers of oil paint she has laid on top – meaning that all of the component parts remain visible. Indeed, pattern is a key part of what she creates and relates very closely to her subjects, it’s an element of revealing the sitter’s ‘true self.’ Intriguingly, her work on raw canvas is designed so you can view the paintings from the reverse, adding to its layers as it shows the work with the pattern instead holding dominance. It therefore provides an exchange about the importance of different perspectives with both people and art. Overall, this nuanced view central to her work is only strengthened by her experimentation with various artistic styles all being present in one piece.
