Letha Wilson's artwork uses photographs of the natural world, such as landscapes. She uses this as a starting point of interpretation, construction, and confrontation. Her photographic work utilizes not only photography, but collage, sculpture, and installation - it sits on a line between abstraction and representation, landscape and architecture. Her goal is for her photographs is to question the ability of a photograph to transport a viewer. She uses collage and sculpture as a way to break this transport, making the photograph fail to encompass the physical site it represents.
I love the contrast of lifeless winter whites and the strips of lush spring greens in #6.
I'm wondering what the material is she used on the back of the image in #3 to make it look almost like a tent or canvas tent? Really, really interesting. Landscapes are beautiful, but are they really what we see when we are out in nature?
Truly some beautiful and transformative photographs here. I love how she works in the space of the gallery in some of these works. Brilliant!
