Alana Wilson’s work is visceral, intimate, and tactile, drawing upon natural, biographical, art-historical and anthropological sources. With a practice involving philosophical inquiry and material investigation, using primarily ceramic, also bronze, printmaking, and photography.
Forming a visual and conceptual lineage across mediums and processes, the Australian-born, New Zealand-raised artist questions the relationship between humans and their environments and the scale at which we exist in nature: the macrocosm and interconnectedness of all life, from the intimate to the universal.
