Angie Wilson uses yarn and light to draw on metaphors of weaving to illustrate phenomena of space and time. She explores matter and light, connecting the external universe and the worlds within ourselves, creating constellations of stars in various states of explosion and formation, death and birth. Her work investigates the parallels between stars and our cells as well as the metaphors of string and fabric to describe the universe.

Her work has been exhibited at Headlands Center for the Arts, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, de Young Museum, di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, Oakland Museum of California, San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, Kala Art Institute, Cult/Aimee Friberg Exhibitions, and Root Division.
