Born in California and trained as an
architect, Michael Wilkinson started his artistic career in
New York in 1979. In 1985, Wilkinson transitioned from
working uniquely in bronze to working in the young medium of
cast acrylic. A forerunner in the medium, Michael Wilkinson
uses acrylic to create dreamlike worlds, communicating
complex themes while still incorporating realism in his art.
Unlike the traditional, these acrylic sculptures have no
beginning and no end; no back and no front. They are viewed
in a new way; studied and observed in their entirety from
the inside and the outside. Working for nearly a decade in
acrylic, Michael Wilkinson constantly expands his talents to
sculpt "light" in original ways.
"My acrylic sculptures are a blend of figurative and
abstract forms, a fusion that I enjoy creating and to which
acrylic is beautifully suited. I start out with clay, a lump
of earth, but end up having created an ethereal world
infused by light. A wonderful aspect of acrylic sculpture is
that it is clear and has an interior: a "fourth dimension"
that allows the viewer to look into the artwork. This
characteristic offers the greatest challenge in working with
the material because the original sculpture model is opaque
clay or plaster. While creating the model, I must envision
through the plaster what is going on inside the work - the
reflections and refractions as they will appear in the final
