richard wright (part 2)

this new work by richard wright uses a handpainted repeated blue mofit that plays on prespective, varying as the eye travels across and down the wall. turner prize winner wright considers paintings less as discreet objects but more as ideas. the paintings only become activated by the vision of the spectator and exhibition ended, the work is painted over and the event is complete. this temporary nature is deliberate: ''i am interested in the fragility in the moment of engagement-in hightening that moment, to see a work knowing it will not last, emphasizes the moment of its existance''.
