Lorna Wilson - painter
"Painting a picture is like solving a complex puzzle."

Lorna Wilson, born in 1967, is a British painter. Wilson studied Fine Art at both Kingston University and at the Royal Academy School in London. Her paintings celebrate natural landscapes and, while boldly recognisable, they rouse a sense of serenity in the viewer.

Committed Colourist

Inspired by the subtle instances of light, reflection and shadow in the natural world and the transience of landscapes, Wilson replicates these ideas on the canvas. Colour is essential to her work; she is constantly improvising and experimenting with new palettes and tones so as to capture the shifting light and ephemerality found in nature.

Depth, Light and Movement

Wilson’s paintings are intensely process-oriented and involve an intricate layering technique. The sense of depth is created by the layers of tonal shades and the fact that Wilson often reworks and repaints elements of the canvas so as to channel this idea of momentum and portray the shifts in mood and light. Wilson uses innovative techniques, pouring and brushing paint across the canvas, which creates this exploration of materiality and depth.

International Commissions and Exhibitions

Wilson has exhibited extensively both at home and abroad, in cities such as Paris, Copenhagen and New York. Her work is held in a number of private, public and corporate collections internationally. Wilson has been commissioned for numerous projects, one of them being three paintings for British Aerospace.
