cut out art : richard wilson

oil art richard wilson openhouse

richard wilson has a tendency of cutting into spaces, the first time i saw one of his installations was the one above in the national portrait gallery in london. first he builds a tank that fits the room perfectly, with a cut into it that you can walking into, then fills it with black oil, that completely reflects what is left. you stand in the middle with a feeling of floating in mid air, with a smell of oil that is a little overwhelming. the has made similar pieces in other galleries including the saatchi and then he went on step further in liverpool, and cut a whole circle out of a side of a building and twisted it. amazing
