Paula Wilson is the UNM Department of Art 2021 Frederick Hammersley Visiting Artist. The artist residency honors the late Hammersley, an abstract artist and former UNM teacher.
Wilson is giving a free public lecture discussing her process, influences, and experiences and a studio tour on Thursday, April 29, 5:30 pm MDT on Zoom.
She received an MFA from Columbia University and a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis. Wilson is a mixed-media artist who studies and sources imagery from different cultures, geographies, and times to develop a unified, visual language of her own. She frequently combines printmaking, painting, sculpture, and video into her projects.
Wilson’s most recent solo exhibitions include Entangled at 516 Arts (Albuquerque, 2019), The Light Becomes You at Denny Dimin Gallery (New York, 2018), Spread Wild: Pleasures of the Yucca at Smack Mellon (Brooklyn, 2018), and FLOORED at Williamson | Knight (Portland, 2018).
