Paul Wright’s work is characterised by its dynamic depiction of his subject matter, whether portraits, monochromes, still life or interiors. ‘We Have Contact’ references the narratives that touch us and connect us to each other. Through Wright's images we pick up clues, and they draw us into his colourful world.

This is the first major exhibition dedicated to this Devon-based artist’s search for a harmonious relationship between form, colour and light. Paintings and drawings spanning four decades trace the development of his singular technique. The works all originate from three-dimensional forms constructed from various materials such as paper and card or wire and wood. Vibrant shapes of light are then projected onto these forms, creating unexpected spaces and colours, tones and shadows. Changed lighting transforms the object’s appearance, allowing the creation of further paintings and drawings from a single form. Inspired by Florentine renaissance artists like Fra Angelico, Donatello and Brunelleschi, Benedict’s work stems from his understanding of control, freedom and the timeless emotional strength that they achieved.
