Hieroglyphics of the Face | Clifton Wright


‘Hieroglyphics of the Face’ an exhibition of drawn portraits by Clifton Wright at Block 336, London. Working prolifically for over fifteen years, the exhibition includes a selection of drawings made from 2017 to 2020. Wright works from life and draws the people around him. Whilst his models may be close friends he has known for many years, he does not make traditional portraits. Instead he uses the face as a starting point, a framework to be considered, abstracted and reorganised. The features of the face become symbols that hang together in new formal arrangements.
