David Wilson

David Wilson was born in Kirkintilloch, Scotland in 1953, studied at St. Martins School of Art, London, and Syracuse University, New York.
Wilson lived and worked in New York for many years while maintaining a studio on North Haven island, Maine. He now lives and works on North Haven and helps operate Hopkins Wharf Gallery. He has exhibited in Maine and New York and this is his first exhibition with Portland Art Gallery.

The Spruce Tree, the leitmotif of this current exhibition, has been a persistent image in his work for the past decade. Conveying a sense of place, Maine and Scotland perhaps, the lone standing figure in landscape presents a potent symbol. The shape and format of the work suggests flags or tapestries and the tree some sort of personal crest or sigil. The landscapes here have been arrived at out of a working process that involves layering paint, tissue and various other papers, mixed materials, including sticks, stones, earth, tea leaves, and flower petals. A trip last winter to India and Bali has influenced the palette and materials. These landscapes and trees have been conjured up from pigment and paper to make elements that are universal – Mountain, Rock, Sky, Sea, Tree.
