Wilson believes in beauty. Her landscapes are knowingly imbued with an aestheticism exploring sentiment, the sensori-emotional values of painting and of subject, and of the capability of the image to explore the metaphysical. Their sublime noiseless spaciousness engages with beauty as a great communicator, generous, a place of mutual exchange. But also as contemplation, transience, and the search for meaning, challenging the continuing tendency to take landscape art at face value. Text by Simon Foxall
