Julian Wild is interested in the idea of the indeterminate in relation to three-dimensional form. He explores the semiotics of materials that he uses which includes glass, ceramics, polished and painted stainless steel. His work considers the relationship between colour and sculpture, paying homage to modernist sculpture of the 1960s such as Anthony Caro's colour series.

“…whether it’s a leaf in autumn or the bright colour of an azalea flower, you can find every colour in nature.”
