marginalize spaces

RICHARD WRIGHT Untitled (3.3.2009), 2009 Gold leaf on paper 83 x 116.5 cm .

Wright's primary manner of working consists of installations or interventions, often placed in unconventional or marginalized spaces of a site—ceilings, cornices, windowpanes, or the edges of a wall. Using simply a brush and paint, the artist creates his wall drawings on site in a time-consuming and laborious process. The results are improvisational yet precise paintings with designs ranging from organic, tattoo-like forms to geometric line drawings to cosmological sunbursts or constellations.
