About Mandy Wilkinson
Born 1970 in Manchester UK. Pure abstract artist who uses paint to express the combining of opposites. Paint is applied randomly but is overlaid with geometric monochrome shapes, providing a contrast and distinction. Colour is very important as it underpins each picture space and installs a sense of vibrancy.
By placing representational and three dimensional objects onto the flat picture plane, this creates a further dichotomy between figurative v abstract and three dimensional versus two dimensional. Sometimes they also provide ambiguous cultural references, and therefore give a brief snap shot of life in the present and a sense of modernity.
Although originally born in Manchester of Armenian descent, she has lived and worked in North Wales for a number of years.
