Emily Wilson "Afternoon Lattice"

Afternoon Lattice is a colorful new collection of wall sculptures featuring stylized birds and creatures amidst natural settings. The pieces are comprised of carved, sanded, and painted wooden forms arranged on lyrical metal rod armatures. 

This exhibition was developed from more than several years of my sketchbook designs and notes. Included in this body of work is an exploration into larger wood components and French beading techniques. With regards to my work, I have pondered that a lattice can be an organic asymmetrical structure that is both partition and portal. Art as a spirit of place, and a place for the mind to dwell.
