Belinda Wilson is a contemporary New Zealand artist living in Auckland.
Working across a range of media including oil and acrylic paint, graphite, and mixed media, Belind creates mid and large scale works that feature the New Zealand landscape, the human figure, and architectural details. Of her gestural figurative work she says, “My work usually involves people in all walks of life. I am interested in their gestures. The way a body is sprung and expresses emotion. The way a body holds the impulse of the next movement already in it. Contained gesture.”
Belinda graduated from Elam School of Fine Art in 1975 with a Diploma of Fine Art with Honours and went on to spend many years overseas, travelling, studying and working in studios across the UK, USA, and Australia. In 1992 she settled in Auckland with her two children continuing her studio work and regularly exhibiting in galleries locally and nationwide. As well as her studio practice Belinda has continued to teach small groups painting and drawing for the last 24 years.
Parnell Gallery has represented Belinda Wilson since 2011.
