Leah Wilson, "Constructing Water" Hand Cut Dura-Lar, 48 x 67" 

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. She is particularly interested in landscapes that have been exploited for their

natural resources in the past, and long-term ecological research sites such as the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest where

research is being conducted to understand the ecosystem we live in and depend upon, and our own place in those ecosystem.

Sky/Water II maps the color patterns of Lookout Creek in the Andrews Forest and the sky above at the same instance from

the vantage point of standing on a bridge over the creek.
