Hannah Willson’s characters appear as if in the freeze frame of a familiar film—that in-between moment where a star is contemplative, defeated, or just in transition. What better place than Los Angeles for the Glasgow-based painters oil works? Or contradictory if you trade their subtly for the grandiosity of movie-making. The debut US solo show at Steve Turner will surely be another moment where Wilson gains international acclaim and attention for these empathetic depictions of identity and conflict. —Evan Pricco
