Will is a recent graduate of Bath School of Art and Design. He has been in several group shows including, Constructing Current Painting at The Octagon Bath, 97 Miles West at the Truman Brewery, London and most recently, The Nature of Change: Hybridity and Mutation, at HRL Contemporary on Wilkes St, London. He was also selected for the Tate Modern project which was organised by Bath, Norwich and Winchester art schools and hosted by Tate Modern.

The work occupies the space between disciplines by investigating the boundaries and perceptions of painting. The resulting forms and surfaces encourage discourse through the continued debate of objectness in painting and also pose questions about the materiality of colour.

The work explores ideas of order and chaos, painting and sculpture, avant-garde and kitsch and how these precarious pairings can exist together, through subtle formal arrangement and colourful sensory overloads.

Bringing paint away from the canvas to force it to exist as substance alone, these kaleidoscopic works celebrate the brilliance of colour, through a clear interest in the medium of paint.
