In The Eyes of Each
Faction Art Projects has announced a solo show of paintings by award-winning British artist Lisa Wright. In The Eyes of Each will be Wright’s most ambitious exhibition in New York.
In The Eyes of Each will present a series of oil paintings which Wright refers to as her ‘inner landscape’ series, figurative works that embody natural landscapes. Wright’s inner worlds encompass fauna, trees, birds, insects and sky.They draw our attention back to nature and remind us of our responsibility to protect Earth’s ecosystem.
Each of Wright’s distinctive subjects embodies a unique landscape that collectively represent growth and the protection of Earth for future generations. The subject in Luminous contains glowing skeletal insects that have emerged from various stages of metamorphosis, a visual metaphor for human development from child to adult. Similarly, Blossom Keeper with her poignant expression contains an abundance of flowers reflecting her own flourishing and development.
Silken is embellished with blue flora reminiscent of the traditional blue and white decoration of Chinese porcelain, delicate and fragile, while Song of Starlings figure contains trees and yet birds are absent. The title suggests an imagined bird song.
The figures of varying scale stand alone and out of context, they are transient and timeless. The careful balance of both figurative and abstract elements, along with a heightened and often sensual use of colour, emphasise the vibrant and contemporary nature of the work.
