Letha Wilson
Punch the Sky
February 4 - 27, 2011

For the exhibition Punch the Sky, Letha Wilson presents recent work that takes landscape photography as the starting point for sculptural construction and interruption. In her work the ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photograph’s failure to encompass the physical site it represents. Wilson shoots and prints her own color photographs, often taken in the Western United States, and her work approaches the genre of Landscape Photography with equal parts reverence and skepticism.

Wilson was raised in Colorado and received her MFA from Hunter College in New York City, and her BFA from Syracuse University. She attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009, and her artwork has been shown at many venues including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Socrates Sculpture Park, Exit Art, BravinLee Programs, Nudashank, PARTICIPANT Inc, and the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art. This year Wilson will be an artist-in-residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, and she currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
