Paul Wright has spent the last 15 years developing a painterly language through which he seeks to capture a vitality beyond the establishment of a mere 'likeness' to the subject. Whilst Paul appreciates the importance of the subject being recognisable, they are glimpsed rather than exposed, their inner selves hinted at but ultimately inscrutable.
Though he often works on a large, potentially imposing scale, the work remains immediate 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. Paul Wright's subjects retain their integrity and yet a sense of intimacy is evoked.
