ARCHgallery is pleased to present the work of Dale Wilson in his first solo show. His works are created from overlaid strands of audiotape, arranged and adhered to plywood panels almost evoking the look of industrially manufactured sheet vinyl. This immediate industrial aesthetic is in contradiction with the steady labour and multiple repetitive actions taken to make the work, just as the limited duration of the audio contained on the surface undermines the work''s inherent production time. The duration of this audio also determines each piece''s surface area, and therefore the sizes of 15, 30 or 60 Minute Compositions; the titles of which also allude to working within the constraints of time, scale and format. The notion of documenting time within an artwork is inherent in these pieces.
Wilson graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2009. He was included in the first selected group show at ARCHgallery ''the public gets what the public wants''. As the title suggests, visitors to the gallery were invited to vote for one piece of work. Wilson was the outright winner of this public vote.
