Wright’s work focuses on questions of perception, the phenomenological and experiential aspects of landscape/painting rooted in both lived experience and the imagination. Attention is paid to spatial types and what they might engender rather than to rational spatial concepts in an attempt to express visually the more indiscernible moments of an enmeshed experience. Sensations are translated in a primarily instinctive manner, formally responding to both the experience of place and the act of mark making as each is considered.

 

Simultaneously, Wright explores the fundamental aspects of painting while shifting between formal and intuitive concerns as each piece develops. She says “As process and the dynamism of nature are preeminent, I find my paintings, like the landscape itself, are in a continual state of flux. They are a glimpse of my dynamic connection to my world at a given moment, an episodic moment in time. The materials and subject merge along with significant moments of inspiration to record my immersion in my medium. The landscape becomes a device for the exploration of individual expressive interests. I am continually and utterly amazed by the formal complexity and simultaneous elusiveness of such fundamental aspects of painting as color, edge, value, light and form. The tendencies of the medium have come to play a significant role in the development of each painting. I take great joy in the accidents, the drips and the smears.”

Approaching storm at sunset along a canal in the Florida Everglades.

A powerful storm looming on the horizon combined with the low angle of warm light on the sawgrass created this dramatic image in the Everglades.

The “golden hour” is just before sunset when the sun is about 10 degrees above the horizon. The light of the sun in this position must pass through more of the atmosphere resulting in amore reddish and yellow color beautifully illuminating the landscape.

This image along with about a dozen other images of water from the “Serenity” series will be on display during my open studio at C-3/Central Creative Commons on March 31, 2018 hours: 11 am to 4 pm.  1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34236 (between 13 & 14th streets).
