Belinda Wilson graduated from the Elam School of Fine Art in Auckland New Zealand in 1975. She spent a considerable period of her working career overseas in the UK, USA and Australia returning to Auckland for some time but has now settled in Nelson.
We are lucky have such an experienced and versatile artist here with us in Nelson.
Belinda explains "My work usually involves people in all walks of life. I am interested in their gestures. The way a body is sprung and expresses emotion. The way a body holds the impulse of the next movement already in it. Contained gesture. Their spirit, the movement in their bodies, their relationship to one another and to their surroundings – the mood held in their gestures. What they seem to be saying to each other, who they are, what perhaps they are thinking".
