Wilson painted Analytic Cubism and experimented with elements of abstraction, which he called

“a scaffolding under the externals”, a fusion of the cerebral and the emotive.

His Paintings are an exploration of unusual color harmonics, compositional variations, employing disjunctions, repeated and interlocking motifs, linear networks, and complex overlays, he created a sense of transparency through a multilayered development of space.

Ben Wilsion’s work can be found in private collections around the world. Wilson’s work is represented in numerous museum and university collections. Montclair State University, in Montclair, New Jersey, permanently houses his art estate and papers, a portion of which is also included in the Smithsonian Archives of American Art.
