A photographic contone print capturing what Alison Wilding RA experienced as “an unpredictable display of shape-shifting geometry”, and “a drawing masterclass”.

Wilding’s inspiration was watching starlings, at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, gather in winter’s dusk before roosting. She was particularly struck by the flock’s wave-like movement in all directions against a darkening sky.

The Artist

Alison Wilding RA

Sculptor Alison Wilding was born in the north west of England in 1948. In the late 1960s and early 70s, she studied at three different art establishments: Nottingham College of Art, Ravensbourne College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, finishing her final year in 1973. Wilding has worked in different mediums and was known as a multi-media artist at the start of her career, but is now most well-regarded for her multi-textured abstract sculptures. She uses a huge variety of materials to create her work, including silk, steel, bronze, was, wood, beeswax and oil.
