Wilson (b. 1982, UK) works with construction timber, plaster, photography and paint, as well as often improvising with materials to realise ideas. Landscape is used in Wilson’s practice as a medium through which to discuss concerns with experience, access and expectation. The work’s interrogation of how we negotiate landscape functions as an allegory of our relationship to educational, political and social structures.

Through her work as an educator and through reflection on her own education, Wilson questions the parameters within which she operates, trying to distinguish what has been learnt and what can be un-learnt in her process.

From functional objects to towering abstract constructions, Wilson moves between concept driven ideas to developing opportunities to make responsively to a site and situation. Her work attempts to acknowledge it’s situation and surroundings through form and sometimes also function.

Wilson is an Arts Council and British Council supported artist. She recently completed a residency and solo exhibition at Godsbanen, Denmark, and exhibited at Saatchi Gallery, London Art Fair and Wimbledon UAL. Wilson will hold her inaugural solo exhibition at JGM Gallery in the summer 2019.
