Wright has dedicated his career to abstract painting and more specifically, to exploring various media and approaches to abstract expressionism and color field painting. His works range from painting on canvas to mixed media paintings that combine paper collage, paint, ink, chalk and graphite on canvas supports to unique acrylic paintings combined with ink on paper. Wright’s paintings, whether abstract expressionistic or color field, have bold colors and compositions, gestural strokes and the essence of drawing—through his generous use of the formal elements of line and the color black. Frequently, he incorporates gestural calligraphic elements that further extend his masterful exploitation of drawing in his compositions.
