Sculpture, photography mark 'Two Worlds' of artist's show at Oklahoma City gallery

The Oklahoman/NewsOK • June 28, 2015

Holly Wilson, who lives in Mustang, is showing cast metal sculpture and color photos at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center.

The artist, of Delaware and Cherokee descent, traces her American Indian roots, touchingly, in a 22-foot-wide work called “Bloodline.”

Armless, skinny-legged bronze figures seem to walk from one block of a tree, felled in a storm and cut lengthwise, to the other, in “Bloodline.”

Wilson said each section of “Bloodline,” which she began working on nine years ago, holds a generation, beginning with her own children.

But if “Bloodline” deals with the past, leading to the present, it makes a good prologue for the show’s other sculptural wall installations.
