Turning flat images into sculptural objects, Letha Wilson's photographs in relief and site-specific installations draw attention to the relationship between architecture and nature. Shots of American landscapes – reddish canyons, the ocean, lush vegetation – are cut and folded like an accordion into wall-hung pieces whose cavities and slashes possess the physicality of Gordon Matta-Clark's or Lucio Fontana's interventions. With layers of concrete or bases of cement, Wilson's works are a manmade contrast to the natural subjects of her prints, while their final textures also refer back to natural terrains.
Letha's artwork has been shown at many venues including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Socrates Sculpture Park, Exit Art, White Box, Platform Gallery, Fredrieke Taylor Gallery, BravinLee Programs, Partipant Inc., and the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2009 Letha was a resident at the Santa Fe Art Institute, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and was nominated for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award.
