Melbourne based artist, Belinda Wilson, has recently completed a Master of Fine Art (Research) at RMIT University, School of Art, wherein she deliberates the widespread affects that extreme weather has on our wellbeing, especially conditions such as drought, flood and bushfire. Wilson engages in the landscape painting genre to develop a particular narrative of living on the land. In past artworks, the environment was portrayed as a sense of place but in actuality it has been a reaction to extreme weather conditions that had been experienced growing up in regional Victoria.
Having exhibited widely throughout Australia in both regional and commercial galleries including Artistry, Victoria Gallery and the Muse Gallery in Milawa, her work has also been exhibited in public art venues including the Qantas lounges. On an international scale, her work has been exhibited at the Australian Embassy in Korea, in Costa Rica and New York City. Additionally, Wilson has been a finalist for a number of national awards including Prometheus Visual Art Award, Toyota Community Spirit Gallery and the ANL Maritime Art Prize.
