Anthony Wigglesworth is a contemporary artist living and working in Dublin, Ireland. His abstract oil paintings and ink drawings have been sold to private collections in Europe, Australia and The United States of America. In 2017 Anthony will be exhibiting internationally with Sol Art Gallery at exhibitions in New York and London with further shows planned for the end of the year in Chicago, Bristol and Edinburgh.
Anthony’s oil paintings explore the process of constructing and deconstructing patterns. These abstract compositions are produced by a wide variety of treatments. The surfaces are first built up with palette knives and large brush strokes. He then uses long sheets of acrylic attached to wooden handles to build up even more layers of paint. Through a gradual process of addition and subtraction of paint his abstract works start to take form. These large scale oil paintings are inspired by the patterns and designs that make up our everyday environment. Living by the coast in Dublin, the sea has a major influence on Anthony’s work.
Anthony's latest ink drawings are inspired by the struggle between man and nature. Horizontal and vertical ink lines create grid like structures that bring a stability to these works. The visual language sometimes echoes that of sheet music. Branching fractal like patterns weave in and around the vertical axes creating a dialog and a sense of time within the drawings.
