ABSTRACT photographic art by a Saffron Walden resident is going to be displayed at an upcoming exhibition in London.
Oliver Wilson's exhibition, Refracted Realism, is going to be on display at the Mark Jason Gallery, in Bell Street, West London, between February 2 and 24.
The exhibition will showcase his unique photographic technique. Oliver takes pictures of models in the sea or in swimming pools, the water refracting the light in a striking way that emphasises the model's movements and captures rich colours.
He said: "I would want my work to be seen as a contemporary take on the depiction of angels and other celestial beings in Renaissance Paintings - floating figures illuminated by an indeterminate heavenly light source."

Oliver, who was born in Coventry in 1974, lives in Saffron Walden with his girlfriend Charlotte, whose friends and family often act as models in his work.
He studied Fine Art at Newcastle University, then worked as a journalist for four years before leaving to realise his artistic ambitions.
