Wilkinson, Brendon Date
2012 See full details
From a distance, Inner Wing could appear to be a muted watercolour but on closer inspection, has been constructed using layers of naturally iridescent and transparent moth wings. The brown and beige tonal colour variation has been carefully placed to conjure an image of a youthful face, perhaps suggesting the fleeting and delicate temporality of youth. Or is it a mythological monster, taking a human form?
Since graduating with a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Auckland University in 1998, Wilkinson has consistantly exhibited in both solo and group shows, predominantly in Auckland and Wellington. In 2002 Wilkinson was awarded an artist’s residency at Govett-Brewster Gallery, Taranaki. Wilkinson’s works are held by various public galleries throughout New Zealand.
