Artist BIO & CV

Kate Wilson [American, b.1973]
 

I am driven to create work that beckons me into the sublime - that place where emotion holds dominance over vocabulary.

 

I create meditative spaces that invite curiosity. As a contemporary artist, I am inspired by the balance between precision and freedom. My work is influenced by my extensive travels, love of nature, and living along the coast of Rhode Island. 

 

My abstract and representational paintings, installations, sculptures, and large-scale photographic works are characterized by organic forms and the use of nontraditional materials.

 

My most recent paintings, "Metamorphosis and Stasis Collections," are poetic. In sophisticated color palettes, their graceful sculptural and curvilinear forms seem to float in the atmosphere.
