Trudie Wilson is an interdisciplinary Fine Artist predominately working on the Isle of Wight. Her work is derived from place and landscape and she enjoys encouraging others to spend time creatively in the biosphere reserve. She has much experience working with others and is often running multiple creative projects with groups of all ages. You will often find her out on the coastline, in Dinosaur Isle Museum or in her studio.
Being out in the landscape is fundamental to my work, the experience of the raw elements is something I am keen to reflect in my practice. Inspired by exploring the natural environment through both walking in the landscape and the science of palaeontology, I’m influenced by victorian monographs and scientific illustration. I am keen to continue the conversation between artists and scientists. When sculpting I enjoy manipulating materials exploring shape, form, texture and surface, developing pieces containing the themes of fragility, time and harmony. By placing materials with juxtaposing quality’s such as surface texture, I hope to evoke the viewers enquiry into material, I am interested in the tactile quality of material and creating haptic visuality with my pieces.
