If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Painting, Sculpture
I am...
seeing around me the evolution of culture dictated by media as it washes the hands of commerce and sets the stage for a new morality. Once long held conventions, paradigms of thought, tradition, and cultural value now give way to a new world obsessed with personal ambition and material gain.

With the romance of being now draining away from daily life I draw on memories past in order to cope with the present. Caught in a cycle of hope against despair I struggle to make peace with what is happening around me. Changes in life’s stage once so drawn and gradual as to not be witnessed in a single lifetime now pass in a decade. We are now racing away from what once was, bringing with it a blending of nostalgia and decline. The speed of progress now draws a vacuum and pulls me in unwillingly.
About my artwork
Romanticism is where my work finds its voice in both paintings and sculpture. The genre’s inherent qualities and conventions are a suitable vehicle of expression for the cultural criticisms and social climate in which our generation finds itself; a paradigm match, which includes such concepts as excess, transgression, diffusion and ambivalence concerning both rationality and morality
Artists I like
Thomas Moran, Breugel, Altdorfer, Bosch, Turner, Bierstadt...
Interests
Custom bodied vintage Rolls Royces and primitive forms of weaponry.
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Haven't been out of my studio lately.

LA WEEKLY

EVERYBODY IN THE REFLECTION POOL!

By David Cotner



Portentous but never pretentious, the remote and insular visions of loneliness that manifest throughout Edward Walton Wilcox's work are on full display in this overview of recent paintings. "When the anxieties of this world become too severe," he admits, "I create for myself ... a reflection pool for the mind. It is there that I withdraw to the twilight fields and amber vistas of my dreams." All right, maybe just a tad… Continue

EWW Review in THE Magazine for the Arts - Los Angeles

CRIMES OF ROMANCE



Edward Walton Wilcox situates his art within the estranged duality of beauty and repulsion. The title of his latest show, Crimes of Romance, gives evidence of this thin veil he has found between life and death, leading to a strange aesthetic of contrasts.



The nature of Wilcox's work lies in a dark Romanticism clearly inspired by techniques and styles associated with the European Gothic and Netherlandish Renaissance. His paintings and sculptures… Continue

It went well. Sold a few things, that's a very good thing in this market. So I am thankful. I'll put up some pics from the show later today when I get them from the gallery. Thank you for thinking of me.

It will be great to have your work on the website- we can actually start right away- we'll set up a page for you on the site based upon what you have up on the net, and a link to your site. Once its up you can obviously change anything you want. Good luck with the show!
