The artworks by Will are the results of a mixed media practice, born by employing photography and painting to highlight the role of the object and reflecting his interest in the relationships between time and substance.
“When I need one paint stroke, I make twenty of them on a piece of glass, to be peeled up and applied later. When I need photos, I shoot and print a whole roll of 36 exposures. When I want figures and textures from old magazines I spend a day processing them, cutting out hundreds of possible images. Even labour-intensive weaving is done longer than needed.” Wil Murray.
