Grace Wright “Spearmint Fantasies”

Grace Wright a 2014 Elam Art school graduate says “Painting a visual pleasure” is a concept which lies at the heart of my work.  This concept becomes immediately apparent upon first view where bright primary coloured gestural splashes and shapes are interspersed with pastel backgrounds and brush lines.

There is also a degree of serendipity associated with each work indicated by the show title “Spearmint Fantasies” and painting titles such as “This wasn’t the Plum Parfait Doris was Expecting “, “Time-Turning was the Sweetest Memory” and “Daisy Secretly preferred Raspberries in her Gin & Tonic”. Wright states “These are playful works that don’t attempt to address any direct or heavy conceptual meaning.   However an imagined sense of place is often invoked – the titles offer a feeling of a place – the sky sparkling at midnight, a misty still morning”.

Wright’s successful attempts to engage and draw the viewer into this dynamic vortex of tangled and gestural colours, is a primary goal in each canvas the artist produces.  Wright says “I deliberately and strategically construct heterogeneous colour combinations to engage the viewer in the physical and pleasurable act of “Looking”.
