Will Wright: My work is concerned with exploring the extraordinary in the everyday, and finding potential in the seemingly banal. Themes of memory and time passing have been constant. Recently this has manifested itself in a series of paintings and drawings of old toys. These careworn objects act as repositories of emotion, being both deeply personal and universally recognisable. I tend to work slowly in charcoal and pastel from carefully constructed still lives as well as from my own photographic archive and found imagery. willwright71@hotmail.com
