Artist Profile

Hometown: London

Based in: London and Venice

Gregory Warren Wilson is a visual artist, prize-winning poet and published author. His career began by training at the Royal Ballet School; he danced at Covent Garden, then studied violin and composition at the Royal College of Music. As a violinist, he was a member of the Razumovsky String Quartet, the London Mozart Players and the Rambert Dance Company. He has also worked with the Hong Kong Philharmonic and with the Opera House in Florence.

His solo exhibition of abstract designs, 'Paper Mosaics', has been shown in London, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. Warren Wilson's collection of poetry, 'The Mercury Fountain' (Enitharmon, 2008) was awarded an Arts Council Grant. His first work of fiction, 'Twenty-Five Fables', was published in September 2021. He has tutored art and poetry at the National Gallery, Tate Britain and the Courtauld Institute of Art in London.

Warren Wilson’s innovative work in glass plays with the translucent nature of the medium. His work is, in part, sculptural, and is conceived in multiple layers, sometimes as many as eight, so that his designs allow light to interact with the glass itself. In his mosaic work, each tessera is hand-cut in Murano with great precision, so that individual pieces reflect and refract light in an extraordinary variety of ways; sparkling, scintillating, and shimmering.

His designs take as their starting point a fragment of poetry, resulting in a glasswork that exists in its own right while alluding to the original literary source.
