Alison Wilding: Selected series

Alison Wilding: Selected series

Wilding speaks to us about forms that are continuously developing under a stoical surface that recognises body and matter as the primary state of knowledge. The artist maintains a complex relationship with form that shouldn’t mislead us: the sensuality of her work and its reticence is loaded with the material that shapes civilisations and myths.

The selection of prints comprised in this presentation focuses on 4 groups of work dating between 2001 - 2010: Chamber Works, 2010 (published in collaboration with the Karsten Schubert Gallery in London), Species, 2005, Dogs, 2005 (a suite of large-scale etching and monotypes), as well as Vanish & Detail, 2001 (cat. Alison Wilding: Vanish & Detail, published by Ridinghouse, 2014).

Behind their apparent simplicity and immediacy lies a process of experimentation, hilarity and despair, only realised with the superb technical back up from the workshop. There is a pattern to my association with Dan Benveniste which began in 1994; from the anarchy of his workshop he pushes my ideas into the realm of the possible. And whilst most of the sculptures have been made extremely slowly, it is unsurprising that there are correspondences between them and the prints, both past and present.
