Emily Rose Wright
Born 1999 in Seattle, WA
Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY
Born 1999 in Seattle and today based in Brooklyn, Emily Rose Wright earned her BFA in painting with a concentration in computation, technology, and culture from RISD in 2022, and has participated in recent shows throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Wright's work consists of dour, largely monochromatic and hauntingly evocative vignettes. Incorporating a range of media and utilizing both printed and pliable material together in a given piece, most artworks bear a strong impression of the procedural and textural accumulation from which they are composed. Bearing readily the imprinted residue of ink on textured substrates, these works abound with entropic patterning. Wright artfully balances the inherent tendencies of her materials and her intentions, crafting moments of representational figuration that sit amongst layers of abstraction, giving the ultimately inconclusive suggestion of wholly expansive forms.
