subject. Whilst I appreciate the importance of the individual being
recognisable, the subjects are glimpsed rather than exposed, their inner selves

I often work on a large, potentially imposing scale, the work remains
approachable through fluency of brush mark and a rich palette. The spaces the
subjects inhabit are often indeterminate, providing an atmosphere that allows
for ambiguity of psychological state. The subjects retain their integrity and
yet a sense of intimacy is evoked.' PAUL WRIGHT.
Paul Wright has emerged as an accomplished and immensely talented
artist; a defiant standard-bearer for the qualities of technique, craftsmanship,
colour and texture in painting. Although he is clearly influenced by the best
traditions of fine art, his approach is individual, contemporary and powerful.
