Garden Art

Welcome to my new digital portfolio.  I pretty much destroyed all of my paper records, including photographs and art, a long time ago.  Most of it just through attrition every time I moved.   So what you see is starting when access to digital storage became commonplace, about 1999.

The photographic portfolios are a culled selection of unedited roadside photos.   There may be some photoshopped pics in the mix, but that would be mainly in the “abstracts” portfolio.   

Every once in a while nature hands me a gift and I catch some of  it’s beauty in a pic.  Those moments and the inspiration I get from them are what I try to share in my art. The rest of the portfolios speak for themselves.   

One last thing.  You may be wondering why the title “Garden Art”.  It’s pretty simple.  The garden I share with my mate Dave is where most of the ideas for my art are conceived.

I began experimenting with making various types of mixed media art at my studio here in Palm Springs California in 2015.   I use clear resin epoxy, photographic prints, organic materials scavenged from the desert, glass, stone, found objects, thrift store tchotchkes, and decorative art made by others to create all kinds of assemblage sculptures (indoor and outdoor, floor, tabletop and wall hung).  2019 marks the start of a new series of limited edition photo collages,”Lost Horizons” that are sealed and immersed in clear epoxy.

I have separated the works I am currently producing into five categories or series; “Cholla Bowls”, “Spiritual Icons”, “Subway Tiles”, “Garden Art” and “Lost Horizons”.   Learn More About Bill Wilson
