Wilson’s work, although abstract in style, reflects elements found in nature and the artist’s continuing interest in environmental concerns. The tall slightly arched white tubes of steel in 'Resting Place' are evocative of reeds growing along wetlands while nine copper-colored vanes in the shape of birds rest atop the stalks and turn in response to offshore breezes. Wilson has installed many outdoor works constructed with kinetic components that react to the wind, water, or tides unique to each specific site. 'Resting Place' was part of the Inaugural Exhibition at the Abington Art Center Sculpture Garden in 1991 before becoming part of Grounds For Sculpture’s collection.
