Building off a long provenance of appropriation and pop art, Wilson contributes his own interpretation of pop culture imagery through fabric, embroidery and thread. Artists like Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jeff Koons inspire his practice and Wilson seeks to pay tribute to and adapt these masterworks to his own original style.
The Disorder series heavily features iconic figures of American pop culture - Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, even the American flag. Each figure is digitized using millions of hand-drawn stitches and a careful selection of fabrics to bring them to life. Drawing again on Wilson’s signature style of diversely scaleable grid-based works, many of the borders of the Disorder series are 2” tiles, fabricated using appropriated images from Warhol works - soup cans, Brillo pads, and dollar signs.
