A new project by Chase Wilson entitled 'Feb 21 and arrival at the repetition'

About

Chase Wilson paints to ‘carve space’. In ‘Feb 21 and arrival at the repetition,’ FOYER-LA presents 10 of Wilson’s paintings, lusciously carved from “throw-away subjects processed with dramatic attention.” Wilson is interested in how passing fragments of images, objects, and ideas, can reveal or be transformed into coherent, durable, and constructed space.

The objects of his observation, which he describes as “banal things ravished with attention,” set up a “decorated gateway” to access an imagined, durable and painterly space. Space in Wilson’s paintings is compressed and perspective is often altered; a table top provides a surface to hold objects - a medium to reflect light- a place to collect dust – a proposition to the viewer. Visual tension is further generated by the intertwined acts of abstraction and figuration. The effect is “almost a careening out into the empty space that is induced in the paintings, into the emptiness with attentive abandon.”
