Letha Wilson, ‘Headlands Sunset Cement Fold (Magenta)’, 2014, Galerie Christophe Gaillard

About Letha Wilson

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. 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.

American, b. 1976, Honolulu, Hawaii, based in Brooklyn, New York
