Mario Naves posts about the paintings of Helen Miranda Wilson on the occasion of Wilson's exhibition of new paintings at Lori Bookstein Fine Art, New York, on view through November 10, 2012.
Naves writes: "How much experience can be embodied in a rectangular patch of color? If we’re to believe Helen Miranda Wilson... quite a lot... The steady accretion of colored rectangles can be likened to a series of diary entries, with each color signifying an event or an emotion specific to a given day. Given the unhurried, meditative character of Ms. Wilson’s jewel-like panels, one can assume that they are the cumulative result of weeks, and perhaps months, of sustained painting."
