Grace Wright’s paintings are as enigmatic as they are joyful, liquid engineering that defies and bounces rigid academic perspectives well beyond the box of the stretcher frame.
Perhaps this sheer indulgence is the point. For there is a tension inherent in each of these works; a chaotic mishmash of effervescent springs – both sprung and contained – that intentionally belie the depth of thought behind their creation.
