Bethany Wilson is a British artist based in Cambridgeshire. Her work explores bodily landscapes through drawing, mark-making and staining with inks and watered-down pigments. Wilson aims to build landscapes within her work which connect her body to the land and space around her. In her most recent work, Inside Out, Wilson has been exploring the notion of deconstruction and construction using teabags and the leaves inside. The tea leaves are removed from their bags and then stuck to the outside using emulsion, creating an intriguing exploration into the body. Through hanging, staining, bodily mark-making and multiple layers, Wilson intends to create work which develops into its own landscapes.
