Belinda Wilson is an established contemporary artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Belinda's extensive portfolio of paintings and drawings has been realised through her profound resonance with the Australian landscape and its incomparably primitive artistry. Placing emphasis on its fragility when faced with the power of mother nature, and the affectations natural phenomena can impart upon the human psyche, Belinda's work is informed by the beauty found in chaos and the link between the natural environment and an innate sense of place.
Belinda's work has evolved via her singular focus on the myriad impacts rendered by extreme weather - drought, flood and bushfire in particular - through personal experience and a considered, research-led process adopted during the completion of her Masters of Fine Art (by research) undertaken at RMIT University. The pragmatics of her research, manifested on canvas, poignantly and powerfully realises paintings that explore the direct relationship between weather and emotional wellbeing. The composition of the resulting body of work portrays an ethereal allure that fascinates, inviting latent scrutiny that begins to reveal a poetic fragmentation. Belinda's ability to harness her artistic medium to reflect an engaging physiological response from viewers that transcends demographics firmly places her work in a space of powerful relevance within the zeitgeist and current climate change conversations. This facet of her work, alongside its aesthetically proficient beauty, produces a validity and a powerful sense of intrigue.
Belinda has exhibited extensively within Australia (Muse Gallery, Artistry, Victoria Gallery and Qantas Lounges countrywide) and internationally (at the Australian Embassy in Korea, Costa Rica and New York City), with her work receiving accolades from numerous national awards (Prometheus Visual Art Award, Toyota Community Spirit Gallery and the ANL Maritime Art Prize). She is currently represented by Brenda Colahan Fine Art, Manyung Gallery and Levee Art Gallery and Studio.
