Belinda Wilson – Biography
A talented craftsman with a playful imagination, Belinda Wilson’s mixed media works will take audiences into a world of magic and wonderment. Her artistic approach is expressed through painterly layers of color and texture accompanied by precise linework. Sprawling landscapes of ochre, crimson and violet rest beneath beautiful blue skies, and within this idyllic scenery we find figures ambling, soaring, and tumbling in a state of suspended motion. These are divine moments yet not to be taken at face value. The paintings are rich with allegory where ladders or movement become symbols of joyous freedom. One may feel that the youngster within has been finally released from the bonds of the unyielding adult world. Yet within this youthful exuberance lurks the wisdom of maturity. “I capture on canvas what I see every day,” she explains, “I portray the landscape as both harsh and mellow, an area barren and fertile.”
Wilson has lived in many countries and has exhibited internationally for over twenty years. She presently resides in Melbourne, Australia.
