Richard Wilson- 20:50

1987, sump oil and steel

The way the oil has transformed the space makes it seem like you are looking at an infinite distance and that the oil is very deep even though it is only a thin layer on the surface. This illusion is useful when thinking about my own work as it is an example of how not everything is as it seems at first glance. This could be mimicked when experimenting with pools of wet paint/glue in different fluid pour paintings.
