Don't miss Richard Wright Exhibition: only open till 24 June

22/05/2012

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is hosting a special exhibition of work by Glasgow-based artist and 2009 Turner Prize winner Richard Wright.

Wright is now best known for his laboriously hand-painted, fleeting works, the vast majority of which now exist only in documentation or the memory of those who viewed the works in situ. Throughout his career Wright has drawn and - towards the end of the 1990s - began occasionally to exhibit a small number of his drawings. Gathered here for the first time, his drawings are a reflection of his expansive practice, with works that make use of bold and geometric graphics to subtle and remarkably intricate gold leaf paintings.

This exhibition, which runs until 24 June, was commissioned and produced by Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2012.
