shows art locally and in New York.Monica
recently traveled to India and Morocco for the second time to do documentary video and photography with a paleontological team.Her
work is influenced by the people and art of these cultures and the division between America and developing countries.Her
current ceramic work has to do with space, time, and the interaction between material and object.She
is exploring the relationship between clay , wet earth able to sprout seed, able to cycle between bone-dry and complete saturation , and ceramics, this same earth material heated to a temperature that induces an irreversible chemical change creating an impermeable object.Firing the clay removes the organic material and pliability, transforming this once life-sustaining material to stone , and leaving remnants of that transformation.Monica Wilson graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in ceramics and sculpture.She
was an artist-in-residence at both the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony in Woodstock, New York and at Siena Heights University
in Adrian Michigan.
