About Me

Wilfred Spoon is a painter working in the SC Lowcountry. Born in Charlotte, NC in 1960 he earned his MFA at Parsons School of design in New York in 1987.  

His chosen media is oil painting. His paintings explore traditional landscapes, still lifes, as well as interiors. His still lifes and interiors search the mystery of the everyday while maintaining an emphasis on structure. His landscapes are a celebration of nature and fantasy. Sometimes dark but always optimistic.

He strives to express what the artist knows rather than what he sees, and so the facts of physical reality are largely sifted through the mind and personality of the painter. His paintings demonstrate his love for the naive as well as his art education. This combination infuses his work with a surprising clarity in an unexpected world.
