Decorative Art

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 a broad variety of decorative art designed and executed throughout his career—tables, lighting fixtures, candle holders, tableware—it goes on. (For the best overview of the designs and materials, click through the website’s images) While Wilson’s painting and sculpture has always taken precedence over his interest in the decorative arts, 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 signature is very much his own.
