Artist Philosopher

Wilson Hurst

In the visual space of an artistic encounter, the present moment is an amalgamation of mental experiences actualized and external sensations perceived, always on the move forward in time. Even if we could be totally still, while nothing in the environment activates, time must continue in its relentless progression. We can accurately measure an instant but we cannot adequately explain it. Many things remain comfortably beyond control. In discursive spaces that are somehow singular, synergistic relationships render adaptation a two-way street. Concurrently physical and mental, neither here nor there, human geography describes spaces and places functioning under acquiescent conditions. In the act of apprehending it, the world is already there, ready for subjective reflection. Unpredictable moments inform the study of essences in the capacity of existence.
