Sally Wilson Art
Sally Wilson is an artist from the village of Cobargo in the New South Wales Bega Valley Shire. She began exhibiting her landscapes in 2002 and since then has enjoyed success in selected exhibitions and art awards. Her works - mainly acrylics on canvas - capture in a realist style the atmospheric play of light on the land and the vastness and changing moods of the Australian countryside. She has been commissioned to paint works for private collectors and the Australian Defence Force. Her landscapes are held in private and public collections both in Australia and overseas.
The sparse, often soulful and lonely characteristics of the landscape are what interest me
most and what I try to capture in every work. The connection between myself and the raw
honesty of the land is what inspires me. Australia is a place of limitless and constantly
changing horizons, the landscape is a living thing, and it’s from this perspective I aim to
elicit mood, drama and emotion.
My pictures are mainly influenced by the purity of light, the natural forms and lines and
the infinite colour palate of the sky and earth. I am constantly striving to capture
atmosphere and honesty, creating sensory fulfilling works, not just pretty pictures, whilst
displaying the great respect I have for the landscape. I believe achieving this sensory
fulfillment is fundamental to art.
