Marion Wilson

New York


American, b. 1960   —   Marion Wilson’s work fosters a close connection to self and place through art investigations of local ecologies and landscape. Through photographs, paintings, and installations, she interrogates our relationship to nature at a time when extreme climate change threatens ecosystems, livelihoods, and communities.   In recent years, her studio practice has explored industrialized landscapes and useful, stress-tolerant botanies. She has returned to painting as one of her major disciplines, and her photography practice is informed by her training as an oil painter and manipulates both scientific and photographic ways of “seeing.” She synthesizes these three disciplines—science, painting and photography—with artist-invented materials and techniques.  Wilson has exhibited with New Museum of Contemporary Art, NYC; Frederieke Taylor, NYC, Herbert Johnson Museum at Cornell University, Kasia Kay Art Projects, New Orleans; Dorsky Gallery, NYC; Shroeder Romero Gallery, Exit Art, Cheryl Pelavin Fine Arts and Sculpture Center, NYC; in addition to Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, Buffalo, NY; SPACES, Cleveland Ohio; and SCOPE Miami/Art Basel, Miami, Florida. Wilson has been awarded funded residencies at Light Work in NYC; Millay Colony for the Arts (Nancy Graves Award); International Studio Program (NYSCA and Elizabeth Foundation), Sculpture Space in Utica, NY and most recently McColl Center for Art and Innovation in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Wilson graduated from Wesleyan University (B.A.), Columbia University (M.A.) and U of Cincinnati, (M.F.A.)
