My name is Stuart wright, and I am an abstract & landscape artist in the west midlands.
I`ve been painting for over 20 years & I am mostly self taught.i
like the flow of the work, creating something from nothing, glimpsing a
direction to go in, then trying to capture a feeling of warmth or
spontaneity, or charm to bring the paintings to life.
I studied illustration at university, also doing courses in landscape, figure work & abstract art.
In 2005 I began selling my original abstract paintings on eBay and I am
known there as wrightsonarts .I continue to create original paintings to
sell on eBay, as well as offering original paintings on this website...
My paintings are a process of exploration. There are no messages or
hidden agendas, other than to reveal the discoveries made during my
investigations. Perhaps I do take cues from familiar surroundings and
perhaps old rustic buildings, aged surfaces golds,reds,burnt umbers,
autumn leaves,do find their way into my work.
Working with texture and colour is intoxicating.
There is, of course, the seed of an idea or a bit of a plan when I
begin, but I am quickly directed by the work, answering the needs,
sorting the puzzles and discovering solutions. I work with layers of
thick and thin color, washed or scumbled over a textured surface.
Traces are left by assorted mark makers, lines are straight, curved or
gestural, surfaces are wiped, dripped and spattered, all adding to an
eventual sense of accumulation and the essence of time.
I love architecture, volleyball and mountain biking.
I used to think of becoming an Architect, but I never liked the technical aspect of it
