Biography

Clifton Wright has developed a large range of works in different media that draws upon his interest in people and architecture. Sometimes working from images of people unknown to him or those in the media, he has more recently recaptured photographs from his past family and personal history to the present day. This series of small scale drawings have been made over a number of years. Starting from the pages of his family album and photographic documentation of interiors and people, he re-photographs his source material in order to create new images to draw from. The drawings often pay as much attention to the edges of the book or surface of the wall as to the people themselves.
