Richard Wright - New Work
20 June - 1 August 1999
This was Richard Wright's first major solo exhibition in Scotland (although he exhibited at Transmission Gallery in 1994). Wright characteristically responds to the architectural sense of space and detail, by drawing directly in-situ. His work is subtle, thought-provoking and was ideally suited to Inverleith House.
Richard Wright graduated from Glasgow School of Art's MFA programme in 1995, and has exhibited in France, New York, Warsaw, London (ICA), Luxembourg, Oslo, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany as well as in Scotland (Transmission, CCA and The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art). He recently exhibited to great acclaim in New York's Drawing Center, with Paul Morrison (see below). He has been the recipient of the SAC's Amsterdam Residency, an SAC Major Award (1997), and in 1998 received the £30,000 Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Visual Arts.
