Ges Wilson

I am happy in places where ‘wild’ might be possible: hiking, sailing, surfing in Cornwall and travels like Cape York and the Australian rain forest. Work starts intuitively in the environment, developing in the studio as experiential memory evokes physical actions in paint, interpreting my ‘own landscape’ of felt elements and energy in a space and time. Much as I love sometimes solitary spaces on land or sea, there is joy in shared experiences and social engagement. Teaching is for me a fertile and at times surprising exchange of individual searches for meaning, challenges and growth, both about art and environment, so continues to be an important part of my practice.
