Noah Wilson


The photographic process employed by California-based artist Noah Wilson includes traditional gelatin mono-print photography with direct applications of charcoal. The artist’s main interest lies in the process of development and the possibility and interpretation of uncertainty. Wilson illustrates feelings of tension, isolation and the unknown by rendering portions of a scene, while allowing the remaining sections to be ambiguous and undetermined. The work provides questions rather than solutions, allowing the viewer to connect to the image from popular symbols while remaining free of direct conclusions. Wilson graduated from San Jose State University with his M.F.A. in 2005 and received his undergraduate degree from Humboldt University in 2001. Since, the artist has completed residencies with at the San Francisco Recycling & Disposal. Inc and has exhibited with Manoux Gallery in Berkeley, Calif., Callisto Press Editions Gallery in Yountville, Calif., and in 2005 produced his M.F.A. thesis exhibition in Gallery 2 of San Jose State University.
