Hugo Wilson

Hugo Wilson's work examines systems of order and explores ideas surrounding genetics and religion. He incorporates a sense of mischief and subversion into his presentations of scientific experiments or recordings onto defunct technological media. He often borrows from the aesthetics of the Victorian era, as well as obsolete handmade crafts, in his work. He says, "The loss of wonder and the search for the evidence of hope is of huge importance to me."

From 2000-4 Wilson received classical training in fine art at the renowned Charles H. Cecil Studio in Florence, Italy. He went on to study at City and Guilds in London, where he received his MA in 2008. His work has recently been exhibited in Milan and at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Hugo Wilson was born in 1982: he currently lives and works in London
