The strongly coloured paintings of Frank Avray Wilson partook of the gesturally assertive and spontaneous painterly styles of 1950s “Tachism”, informalism and abstract expressionism. At the same time, Avray Wilson’s scientific background – he read biology at Cambridge during the mid 1930s – instilled an aesthetic necessity for structure and for what he called “vitalist” form. His philosophical interests went much further than following the pre-war tendency to link art and science, seeking and insisting on a transcendentalism to counter the atheist or materialist credo of the post-war existential age.
