About Me

Wilkinson Self Portrait Oil on Canvas

My Background

As a field specialist assigned to the Orient, Larry Wilkinson came to appreciate the brush techniques, inks and colors used in Asian painting. His interest in spirituality is expressed in his representation of the archetypes of animals and their ideal characteristics as contrasted with the special assets of plants and flowers. The animal spirit paintings are painted on the delicate rice and mulberry papers imported from Korea and China. The brush techniques meld the tight realistic with spontaneous flourish of essential representation.
