Daphne Wright

Born in Ireland, 1963. Lives and works in Bristol. 'Daphne Wright's work plays with the desire we seem to have for an encounter with beauty in art. Much of her work is visually stunning in a relatively conventional sense. Yet what is central to these works is that on both the macro and micro scale - the distanced and the intimate - Wright willfully undermines this promise of pleasure.'

Daphne Wright's work is the subject of a solo exhibition at Arnolfini in Bristol in 2016, other selected solo exhibitions include those at Limerick City Gallery of Art, Ireland and Frith Street Gallery, London. Wright has been involved in several important international group exhibitions, notably at PS1, New York; Albright Knox Museum, Buffalo; Crawford Art Gallery, Cork; Hauser & Wirth Somerset and at the ICA, Boston.
