"Robert Wright: Looking Back"
2005-06-18 until 2005-07-23
Turkaly Art Gallery
Cleveland, OH, USA United States of America

Turkaly Art Gallery in Cleveland’s Little Italy is pleased to be the first venue to showcase a new series of paintings by Columbus-based artist Robert S. Wright. This exhibition presents a group of narrative paintings that reconnect Wright’s experiences while a high school student in Cleveland in the late sixties. The emotional work looks back to a formative time in Wright’s life and reevaluates his memories and how they effected the person he became. “Looking Back” is a deeply personal window into a young artist’s life that is compelling in its combination of gesture and place.

This series of artworks is a detour from his well-known abstract work involving figurative expressionism. Being deaf since early childhood, Wright’s work has always focused on movement and action, with gestures often resembling Japanese calligraphy. “Looking Back” places the figure in specific locations, drawing its expressiveness from the surroundings where the figurative is located, in a past world that is remembered experience. The colony of figurative forms examines the adolescent socialization as well as alienation patterns.

Robert Wright is an established artist living in the Central Ohio area. After graduating from Gilmour Academy in 1971, he attended Ohio State studying architecture, and then transferred to the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) in 1976. He is currently working on his Masters in Art Education at Ohio State University He has held over 25 solo exhibitions of his work over the past two decades and taken part in numerous other group shows. His painting can be found in many private and corporate collections including; Honda International (Tokyo, Japan) and Banc One Corporation in Columbus.
