About John Wilton

 
 
  • Biography
    In the layering of images and abrupt shifts of context, John Wilton's paintings invite comparison with Pop Art, especially the work of Rauschenberg, Rosenquist and Warhol. Images from popular culture collide with personal memories in a free-association collage of impressions. At times the viewer is aware of mechanically-reproduced, decorative patterns set against a carefully hand-painted passage. In his mixed-media works, fragmentary images drawn from every imaginable printing technology coexist tranquilly within the same perceptual plane.

    As a former graphic designer and professor of digital media), Wilton often makes use of the jump cuts and visual punch of ad layouts in his personal work. But these combines of found objects and mass-produced images resonate with the subjective, the expressive, the personal marks of the artist. The result is a work both introspective and extroverted, reflecting both the artist's conscience and the barrage of images in this multimedia age.
