Rewilding: A Solo Exhibit by Elizabeth R. Wilson

A solo exhibition featuring Elizabeth R. Wilson
Friday, July 26th, 5-7pm
An interest in biomimicry, architecture, and the evolution of eco-friendly building is evident in Elizabeth R. Wilson’s current series ‘Rewilding’. The juxtaposition of space and nature with urban construction is reflective of her upbringing in New Zealand and her nine years living in the mega-city metropolises of São Paulo and Shanghai.
Of her style, Wilson says, “I am interested in a combination of illustration, graphic design, surrealism and symbolism. I’m searching for the perfect balance between good design and painting. My brushwork is very detailed and intentional.”
Each pod she paints holds the space for seeds of tomorrow to exist — recreating, reinventing, and forward-thinking, seeking sustainable solutions. Be inspired by biomimicry, and explore elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems in ‘Rewilding’.
