Denise Wilkinson has been making art since the 1990s in various materials from cast glass to painting. Her current work explores paint, making paintings on canvas using a small straight mark, overlapping lines and layers, building up textures, mixing colours for contrast or complementary effect. Denise’s current practice with paint is inspired by formal explorations of paint, texture, colour, mark making... with a now conscious link to knitting and crochet. It is process orientated where colour and marks change to build up the work to a coherent piece, and ideas that come up while making the work are explored in the next piece.
Denise uses Resene as she is familiar with the product since using it in museum and gallery work completed previously. She is used to the palette system and likes the testpots, in particular they are just the right size for her current work. The paint dries quickly so Denise can move from one colour to another readily. The plasticity of the paint is also enjoyable.
Denise’s work has sold at the New Zealand Art Show.
A wide range of artists are using Resene paints in their work, on everything from interior paintings to tactile artworks and mural masterpieces.
