ARTISTS > AYSE WILSON
Ayse Wilson’s work explores childhood, nostalgia, and the unsettling transition from infancy to adulthood. Her work draws from memory and emotion to remind viewers of youth, innocence and the timeless space we occupy when we are young. Inspired by found images, as well as imagined, Wilson stylized figures with doll-like faces and dark pools for eyes, set against monochromatic backgrounds are seemingly suspended between states of fantasy and experience. Wilson trained as a classical painter in Florence, received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art and worked as a painting assistant to Jeff Koons. She is represented by Geary Contemporary in New York and PG Art Gallery in Istanbul.
