Wilson works with construction timber, plaster, photography, paint and often improvises 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. For Gated Community, Wilson presents artworks in the form of two regularly occurring motifs within her practice: a boat house and gate.
