Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947)
The Letter P, 1984
From The Ultimate Alphabet
“A picture of pictures,” writes Mike Wilks. “Portrayed here you can find a painter in profile clad in P’s whose palette is charged with appropriate colors, a patchwork quilt of pertinent hues, a pineapple, a pestle, a press and some proofs (can you place the image?), a partially painted panda, a plethora of pargeting in appropriate material, a paperback publication, and plenty of patterns for you to put into perspective.”
From the best-selling book The Ultimate Alphabet (released by Pomegranate in 2015 as The Ultimate Alphabet: Complete Edition), The Letter P is one of Wilks’s most challenging and intricate compositions. Can you find all of the P words depicted here? If not, check out the list and key included inside.
