Patricia Wilson-Adams has been a practicing artist for a lifetime and has had a career as an educator, writer and arts organiser.
Education: National Art School, Sydney – Atelier 17, Paris with French Government scholarship – MFA College of Fine Art, University of NSW.
Experiences: She has worked in many print workshops and has held residencies all over the world. She has exhibited prints and sculpture in many major regional galleries with a survey exhibition, stain me with the intensity of black at Newcastle Art Gallery showing the past 20 years’ work.
Employment: P.W-A made an important contribution to education at The University of Newcastle where she taught Printmaking, Drawing and Sculpture electives. She was supervisor to many PhD and MFA candidates.
The art: Has a focus on issues pertaining to environment, cultural landscapes and land usage which is based philosophically on a study of Ecophenomenology. Her work could be classified as Post-Minimalist in that it eliminates the descriptive, excludes the pictorial, narrative and the fictive, with a focus on essential form and the reductive. She works in sculpture, installation, print media and artist’s books and could be best described as being a polyvalent artist.
