From the camera obscura to digital capture, this mid-career survey of works from the early 2000s to 2015 underscores ANDREW WRIGHT’s interest in perception and the technologies of photography. Wright’s artistic practice is at the intersection of traditional and conceptual forms of artmaking, where explorations of form, light, and photographic phenomena come together to reveal an unexpected perspective on nature. Through an approach that is often experimental, even playful at times, Wright’s highly refined works invite us to reconsider the ways we relate to and visualize the world around us.
