Fionn Wilson is a self-taught artist living in London. Her main focus is expressionist figurative painting including portraits, landscapes and still life. Through her work as a painter she seeks to examine and explore the sensuality of presence in space and colour, not least the presence of the human form.
She says: "'Painting is almost like a space I enter and, despite the frustrations that sometimes go with it, it is for me a place of pure delight. I love painting and I love looking at paintings. I like the thickness of the paint and the smell of it. I like the various brushes and the exotic sounding names of the different colours that I use. There are few things I enjoy as much and I paint because I wouldn’t know how not to paint. It is such a vital part of my life that I can not imagine myself without it".
Fionn says she is interested in exploring "life force through sexuality, the energy 'behind' things, light and the creation of spaces". She very rarely knows what she will paint when she picks up a brush. Her paintings are the result of following a series of "mistakes" and the painting often seems to paint itself. It's like the paint "knows what to do".
