Inquire

The watercolors of Samuel Wyatt have a haunting quality—not least of all because they tend to depict ruined interiors, with once functional objects still visible in outline. The medium of watercolor soften these settings, lending them an ethereal aspect that contravenes the stark use of darker colors that Wyatt prefers.

Darkness and light, utility and desuetude, are equally inspirational sources from which Wyatt shapes his subject-matter. A scene might not be wholly bombed-out, but still a little trace of non-utility comes to the fore, a shadowy double of the disinterested delight intrinsic to art.
