It is my ultimate hope to inspire people In a world of increasing exposure to information, both useful and not, I try to escape the mental barrage by creating moments of reflectivity and serenity. By isolating tiny facets of nature and the human experience my work encourages the viewer to meditate on the unnoticed.

Wiltse invented, rather than rendered or interpreted, a landscape. His bushy treetops carpet an arboreal world, while the trees beneath seem more like roots than trunks. Ultimately, invention is what elevates engaging landscapes above lackluster ones and Wiltse's vision is among the most original in the exhibition. -Marc Awodey, Art Critic, Seven Days Magazine Jurying 2008: One of three judges for The Palleteers Annual Juried Members Show and Competition: Barre Public Library, Barre, Vermont
