This event has ended.

Georg Wilson’s debut solo show This Other Eden opens at Kravets Wehby Gallery on April 23rd at noon. Paced by the changing of the seasons, Wilson’s work flows through time, chasing one equinox to the next. In its cyclical journey, each painting absorbs the legacy of the English landscape, a place weighted with its own lore and mysteries. Wilson carves out her own space within this mythos. Dark, luminous, spiritual, playful, awkward, sinister–her surfaces and characters possess the uncanny ability to beguile and simultaneously unsettle.

This Other Eden references Shakespeare’s conjuring of Albion, a green and ancient land. In Wilson’s Eden, forlorn, and at times downright grumpy, figures burrow themselves into thick layers of glossy oil paint, making a strange new home for themselves and their animal companions. Unbound by civilization or social etiquette, they climb trees, eat eggs with their hands, smoke and dance in the moonlight. The work simmers with a low humming intensity under a palette of dark hues that are offset by pale reds, blues, and acidic greens and yellows. Dawn always feels like it’s just beyond Wilson’s stretch of canvas, pulling Spring with it.

Georg Wilson lives and works in London, England. She’s receiving her graduate degree from the Royal College of Art.
