He is a visual artist and author who makes paintings, drawings and prints, He teaches studio art and art history part-time at Lee University, Dalton State College, and conducts regular painting workshops at a variety of venues. He resides with my wife, and a multitude of dogs and cats in Charleston, Tenn. "Twenty years ago I became interested in the idea of painting as an improvised performance," Wilson says. "I had grown dissatisfied with making work that was fully conceived at the beginning, worked out through studies and sketches, and then executed onto canvas. Something important was missing. I began to make paintings with no formulated plan. I let the images emerge slowly or quickly out of the painting process itself. I began playing with color, line, texture and shape. I embraced uncertainty as an essential element of creating. "My painting process is fluid and organic. I constantly make changes throughout the creation of a piece. I have no philosophy of painting other than to be open and responsive to the possibilities of the moment. Connecting with the present and finding the potential- this is what my work is about."
