This summer, three exhibitions of Aboriginal art by one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, Regina Pilawuk Wilson, will be on view in Charlottesville and Washington, D.C.
This solo exhibition of Regina's work at Second Street Gallery features paintings on canvas and paper, as well as fiber works and prints. The inspiration for Wilson’s works come from the traditional weaving practices of her people. In shimmering detail, Wilson recreates weaving techniques in paint on canvas—stitch by stitch—creating luminous rhythmic abstractions. Wilson’s large-scale masterworks, which have brought her international acclaim, will be exhibited alongside her virtuosic fiber-works that show both the innovation and strength of tradition in contemporary Aboriginal art.
Regina Pilawuk Wilson’s artwork will also be on view this summer at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia and at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. in the Marking the Infinite exhibition of Aboriginal paintings by established women artists.
