Mario Naves writes in his review of Wright's "New Paintings" show at Metaphor, "exquisitely manipulated puddles of acrylic paint ... biomorphic shapes snuggle up against each other to droll and fetching effect." The New York Observer, dated September 16, 2002.
Critic Lilly Wei writes in the catalogue of Wright's paintings, [they] "mean to be eye candy" and "remind us that painting itself may still be the ultimate desirable object." Lance Esplund writes in Modern Painters, "Wright's paintings are sexy...it's as if she had imbued seaweed, comets, and bubbles with human qualities and trained them to flirt with us from the canvas."
Tricia Wright pours her acrylic paint in a controlled dance, turning the canvas and expertly manipulating the rivers of drips. Hypnotic and delicate passages of filigreed and lacy curling shapes wave like dragons, ferns or sea plants playing across colorful fields, in a seductive trance.
Born and educated in London, England, Tricia Wright was included in the prestigious British Consulate Exhibition, Art Transplant, British Artists in New York, 2001. She is in the David Bowie Collection of Modern British Painting, among many other public and private collections.
