Leah Wilson

Visual Artist

Leah Wilson lives in Eugene, Oregon and makes paintings and installations that are place-based records of changes that occur within environmental ecosystems over time. Her process-oriented work frequently uses or interprets scientific data or the results of observation. In a sense Wilson’s work emphasizes the crucial similarities that exist between the processes of artmaking and scientific research: both rely on disciplined observation, embrace experimentation, and are attempts to investigate and understand the world and its phenomena.
