Maree Wilson’s works evoke water, atmospheric disturbance and erosion. Holes are gouged and drilled through smooth polished layers of ground and subtle washes of paint, disrupting the painted surface and moving the works from abstracted landscapes to self-reflexive studies of surface and the process of making. The works celebrate the light and the dark of elusive landscape memories, the moments before a storm kicks in, and the wonder of the light coming from the black. Born in Helensville and now living in Whangarei, Wilson has continually referenced the New Zealand coastline in her paintings. She asks the viewer to consider their place in the landscape, and the landscape as inseparable.
