Wilma Wyss worked as a print designer for twenty years before she began creating concrete and mosaic sculptures. She calls her Pillow Series and Fluid Sculpture Series ‘visual contrivances, illusions of flimsy and fluidity and three-dimensional trompe l-oeils’.
Rust Easy Pillow
“In my pillows, I play with associations of softness, comfort, and lightness, while simultaneously expressing the seemingly contradictory properties of hardness, discomfort, and weight.”
Going Back In Time
Awakening: Metamorphosis of Protective Thoughts
“My experiences as a woman, wife, and mother drive my exploration of feminine themes in my artwork. I play with the meaning of familiar objects, and create space for feminine viewpoints. I am fundamentally nurturing and supportive, and I manifest these characteristics in my sculptural collages.”
