Banded Rutile Waisted Vessel
Alana Wilson works primarily in ceramic, with a studio practice that also encompasses sculpture, photography, printmaking, and film. Forming a visual and conceptual lineage across mediums and processes, the Australian-born, New Zealand-raised artist questions the relationship between humans and their environments, and the scale of which we exist in nature. Often drawing upon natural, biographical, art historical and anthropological sources, Wilson’s work is inherently visceral, intimate and tactile. With a practice that involves a combination of philosophical enquiry and material investigation, the latter involves following instinct and experimentation in the studio. Firing to 1260ºC allows the metamorphosis of surface degradation to be captured, appearing to exist in a state of motion and decay, even once cooled.
