LONDON CRAFT WEEK – VIC WRIGHT AT PAUL SMITH
Paul Smith will present a series of unique sculptures by Vic Wright as part of London Craft Week. These one-off works by the Manchester-based artist evoke an amplified and distorted vision of the natural world.
Vic Wright is a sculptor from northwest England. She studied fine art at the University of Humberside and now works from her studio in Manchester.
Wright has an explorative and experimental approach to her work and is influenced by nature’s ability to display beauty through difference. Her work typically takes the form of casts, with metal powders and pigments added to the process to create unique textures and colours.
“For this new series of work l have expanded on the theme of naturalistic forms.” says Wright. “Referencing the visual textures of rock strata and organic mineral particles, my intent was to explore surface and texture in sculptural form. With deeper exploration into my materials such as cement filigree and hand grown crystals, l wanted to expand into a coming together of contrasting elements and generate more intricate detail.”
