Wyatt Mills

Los Angeles. Lives and works in Berlin.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The process of destruction and recreation is a driving component of Mills’ work. Reckless chaos swimming in harmony amongst static and patient application leaves the viewer wondering what came first. It is no secret that Mills’ finds a tumultuous fascination in the immediate removing, covering, and applying of mediums. However, these robust movement’s are paralleled by slower, more meditative swaths of color and meticulous detail. The thought and the afterthought are communicating with each other through a world of dislocated formalism. This ritual of directionless, yet precarious commotion is a kin to alchemy. Each ingredient of the chromatic spectrum of colors are mixed into their full force and incoherence. Fleeting depictions of archetypal imagery from day-to-day life are scattered into the works like broken memories stitching themselves together to survive. These process based paintings dismantle secure knowledge and celebrate instinct. Mills speaks to the abundance of opportunity that lies within the wreckage of an image, and his creation thrives in the center of the dualistic battle of progressive creation.
