Works in the Collection
LeRone Wilson is a sculptor and painter living and working in New York. Wilson’s primary medium is beeswax, the oldest form of painting, used by the ancient Kemetic people to create art, among other things. His sculpted encaustic paintings explore the complexities of the historical and cultural inferences of spirituality, history, and identity. Wilson received his BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago, School of Art and Design. Wilson has shown in galleries around the country, including Rush Arts, Kim Foster, Boccara Art, White Box, and G.R. N’Namdi in New York and Chicago; and more. Currently, his work can be seen at Bill Hodges Gallery in Chelsea, New York, a gallery focused on showcasing work by historically significant and contemporary African American artists.
