Artist in Focus: Straiph Wilson

Straiph Wilson – “My ceramic work is in part a reactive agitation from my long working career as a technician in the field of behavioural ecology and evolutionary biology; this encompassed the study of organic diversity, including its origins, dynamics, maintenance and consequences. Through my art practice I am forcibly blurring boundaries between associations of ritual, power and speciation. Having this extraordinary insight into the opposite worlds of science and art, I realize that I belong to two distinctive groups that in practice in zones conventionally seen as mutually exclusive; creating so-called ‘Zones of inhibition’”.
