Contemporary Photography, video
(Lake Forest, IL, 1983 - )
Raised in Wisconsin, Ryn Wilson is an interdisciplinary artist living in New Orleans. Working with photography and video installation, she often incorporates performance, textile, collage, sculpture, and sound into her practice. Wilson takes a cinematic approach to narratives with an emphasis on feminism, mythology, and the environment. Her work acknowledges that the people currently in power do not prioritize preserving the land, and it considers how things might be different in a matriarchy. A member of the New Orleans artist collective The Front since 2014, she holds a BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and an MFA from the University of New Orleans.
