BY SHONA WILSON
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 26, 2014

The repetitive use of natural detritus brings Shona Wilson closer to understanding the world we share. The materials themselves are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as 'keys', unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination. Her current work increasingly responds to and reflects upon the cross-pollinations between nature, humans and culture, referencing in particular, plastics' invasion into the 'natural' world.
