Delia Vilhelm’s works are about discovering and building form through an intricate chain of transitions, each embedded with a complex and layered history.
Colourful twisted forms unite in playful pattern-making in Delia Vilhelm’s works. Her canvas becomes a place where the figurative and real collide.
“Before I start to work on a new painting, I have a clear vision of its motif, colour and its form. However, the process of painting itself is the chance to lead me to a point and solution that I could not have thought of in advance. Forms evolve, the painting grows and acquires a life of its own. Sometimes, the painting is finished when any trace of the primary idea has dissolved.”
Delia paints on unstretched canvases pinned to the wall. This suits her technique, which is increasingly built on layering several colours and then scraping them away to create singular patinas on the images she tends to depict.
Delia’s works are not intended to be entirely fulfilled visions. They are the most direct and uninhibited mode by which to convey an image, an idea, to a spectator whilst retaining the essence of her own perception.
Delia is also a finalist in the 2022 Art Lovers Australia Prize.
