Turning flat images into sculptural objects, Letha Wilson's photographs in relief and site-specific installations draw attention to the relationship between architecture and nature. Shots of American landscapes – reddish canyons, the ocean, lush vegetation – are cut and folded like an accordion into wall-hung pieces whose cavities and slashes possess the physicality of Gordon Matta-Clark's or Lucio Fontana's interventions. With layers of concrete or bases of cement, Wilson's works are a manmade contrast to the natural subjects of her prints, while their final textures also refer back to natural terrains.
