About This Book

An extensive monograph surveying the recent major works of artist Richard Wright. This fully illustrated publication presents Wright’s exquisite paintings and drawings. Wright states "I wanted to get to the idea without the object getting in the way." This attitude led to paintings of extraordinary skill made directly onto the wall that do away with the physicality of the canvas. This publication records these special transient events where paintings have appeared, and for the most part, no longer exist. Winner of the prestigious Turner Prize (2009), Wright’s work was praised by the judges for its "profound originality and beauty."
