Turning flat images into sculptural objects, Letha Wilson’s photographs in relief and site-specific installations draw attention to the relationship between architecture and nature. Shots of American landscapes—reddish canyons, the ocean, lush vegetation—are cut and folded like an accordion into wall-hung pieces whose cavities and slashes possess the physicality of Gordon Matta-Clark’s or Lucio Fontana’s interventions. Wilson received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University, and went on to receive her Master of Fine Arts from Hunter College. She has had pieces exhibited at The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, and the International Center of Photography, as well as many other galleries and showrooms. She was a recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Photography, and has been further recognized by Artsy through her inclusion in their list of ‘These 20 Female Artists Are Pushing Sculpture Forward’. With layers of concrete or bases of cement, Wilson’s works are a manmade contrast to the natural subjects of her prints, while their final textures also refer back to natural terrains (via artsy).
