Edmund Wyss - Exposed

29 Sept 1 December 2012

San Francisco based artist Edmund Wyss is a hyper-realist painter who works primarily in oils and gouache.  

His approach to still life oil painting focuses on detailed rendering of mechanical forms; drawing comparisons between rudimentary weapons and old photographic tools. Both tools can reach their targets from great distances. The camera is enabled by various lenses to capture and define space, while weapons dominate space by launching projectiles. Devoid of narrative traces or subjectivity, the subjects dominate the viewer’s field of vision. Observers should enjoy the work from multiple perspectives, between its massive sculptural illusion to a use of meticulous and active brushwork. Wyss’ examination of his subject is unrestrained and suggests a kind of mechanical obsession. They are simultaneously familiar and uncanny.

Visited the Art Centre today with my school and saw Edmund Wyss -Exposed Exhibition it was fantastic, when you looked at his paintings from afar they looked like enlarged photographs it wasn't until you got up very close you could see they were paintings and great sculptures too -brilliant exhibition.
