Visual artist Leah Wilson creates place-based paintings that address changes within environmental ecosystems over time. Both process and finished paintings reflect an engagement with ecology and environmental engineering through observation and data. In addition to drawing attention to natural cyclical changes, many of her paintings tell stories of landscapes that have been exploited and manipulated for their natural resources, and reveal the results of ongoing habitat restoration projects.
Leah Wilson’s recent work is centered at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest located east of Eugene, Oregon. The Andrews Forest is one of 26 Long-Term Ecological Research sites in the world, making it ideal for extended place-based projects informed by ecological changes, and for cultivating of a sense of place through the creation of long-term projects.
