Architectural Design

Wilson’s art reflects a consistent fascination with architecture, as well as a facility for translating traditional architectural forms into a vernacular all his own. This interest comes to the fore in several architectural projects—models executed for clients or himself. While he has often collaborated with architects and designers, his true “laboratory”and largest “work in progress” is perhaps his own home, which he continues to remodel in phases. (For the best overview of his models and designs, click through the images.) While Wilson’s painting and sculpture has always taken precedence over his interest in architectural design, the body of work reflects an unusual synthesis: Frank Lloyd Wright, pre-Columbian art, “Star Wars,” Futurism, and Greco-Roman Classicism. In the end, Wilson’s architectural signature is very much his own.
