Infused with Colour
Gregory Warren Wilson in conversation with Joanna Bird. In association with the Joanna Bird Foundation.
Wednesday 26th May, 6.00 – 7.30pm, at the Chiswick Gallery
Gregory Warren Wilson is an artist, professional violinist and award-winning poet. His most recent work in glass is the culmination of twenty-five years of design. Working on multiple layers of glass set within deep frames, his work is sculptural in its concerns. He balances colour in such a way that each design appears definitively resolved, while at the same time maintaining its asymmetry.
Recently, the Gallery has made a short interview with Gregory (viewable with this link) in which he discusses his artistic process and his new mosaics for the exhibition.
