In Letha Wilson’s work, the ability of a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon and questioned: sculptural interventions attempt to compensate for the photograph’s failure to encompass the physical site it represents. She approaches landscape photography with equal parts reverence and skepticism. Wilson makes her own photographs, often during travels in the American West. The hands-on relationship she has developed with photography allows her to further push its potential as sculptural material. Her studio practice has a strong emphasis on material experimentation, where tests and trials lead to discoveries and unexpected results. Her work is often created in response to a particular environment or context, like gallery architecture or an outdoor setting.

Wilson created Folded Nevada Slot Burn, 2019 during a residency in Las Vegas, NV, in support of Shandaken Projects.
