Wil Swink

"Too many good ideas never get acted on. For me, art serves as a vehicle for executing those ideas. In the years since I’ve been seriously painting, I have found that I’m interested in the concept of walls as they relate to boundaries. We decorate our walls for whatever reason, and I think that helps us define who we are. Maybe for some it’s an expression of the self, but for others it’s a pursuit of the same. I feel that life is a constant unraveling of layers. My art is just that. I am just trying to figure out who I am. If my work helps others do the same then that’s an indication that I am going in the right direction."

Wil Swink's paintings are typically a result of many layers of paint, maps or blueprints, wood stain, epoxy, etching and wood. These materials serve to provide richness and meaning in the sensory process. Wil's work is a product of a variety of life experiences and a vehicle for self-expression. Having a background as social worker, teacher, and therapist, his art captures themes related to the complex nature of the human experience.
