Amy Wright

Wright has a preoccupation with capturing abandon landscapes; the discarded, ignored and untamed. Each canvas is it’s own Wunderkammer, holding a world that morphs reality with imagination and myth, where plants are depicted wildly and landscapes are tiered and towering with obscured horizon lines. Wright works in mixed media, and her painting methodology is reminiscent to collage, where the whole is made up of cropped fragments. Pattern, shape, texture and colour are used to create a sensory narrative of the landscape.
