Kat Wilson

Kat Wilson is a Bentonville-based artist. She received her MFA from the UARK’s School of Art and is the co-founder of Bottle Rocket gallery. Wilson’s work has been exhibited, performed, published regionally and internationally. Notable displays of her work include the Louvre, Los Angeles Times, 21C Bentonville, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Washington Post, and Communication Arts. Wilson's "Habitats" series of digital photographs explore the lives and personalities of her sitters through elaborate orchestrations of the possessions and spaces that constitute their everyday environment. Employing centuries-old compositional devices, Wilson's theatrically conceived portraits transcend the quotidian familiarity of the personal belongings and spaces they depict, casting her subjects as both intimately vulnerable, and heroic.
