Pilkington’s paintings are dense and intricate: layers on layers and shapes on shapes in unfinished rough brushstrokes render the works to an almost illegible perspective.
A few sharp boundaries separate different scenes making the whole appear to be a sort of collage of different cut-up paintings that were painted on different times. A small trespass here and there proves the opposite however and emphasizes the merger of the new and the old which is a constant throughout his work.
In his newest paintings old-fashioned porcelain figurines take the lead in an untraceable story, reducing them to the traces of an elusive past.
