With a career spanning over two decades, Shona Wilson continues to engage with permutations of the natural world in her intricate, awe-inspiring assemblages. Often focussing on the by-passed and the unseen, Wilson amplifies and decontextualizes the micro to draw attention to the wonders of ostensibly ‘insignificant’ elements of the everyday. The artist perceives nature’s materials to be repositories of information, stories and knowledge: 'for me, these materials have become a set of keys, unlocking doors to science, history, memory, imagination and spirit.' Her recent work investigates the interfaces and thresholds between Nature and Culture, revealing that they are ultimately inseparable.
