Throughout Wright’s practice she has continuously challenged means of representation and abstraction in contemporary painting. As the title suggests, this new body of work draws on the history of art, paying homage to medieval painting and religious iconography. Wright uses secular and religious historical images of women as a foundation from which to develop an expanding series of feminine archetypes. “I think a lot about the representation of females throughout history alongside contemporary references. The Venus of Willendorf, Mary Magdalena, The Three Graces and Cardi B are some of my many muses”, states Wright.
