Kevin Wright 

 

Kevin Wright feels that one aspect of his work is to capture a ‘sense of place’.  He sees that places can resonate with their history and own special feeling.  This approach to creating images is evident in his series of prints of London, Venice and South Devon.  He works mainly in the print medium of etching and aquatint.  His work has been exhibited widely and has been included in exhibitions at the Royal Academy, the London Barbican, National Trust properties and internationally.

Kevin Wright creates limited-edition fine-art etchings.  He uses traditional methods, working his imagery into copper plates by biting them with solutions of acid. 

 

Kevin prints the copper plates onto heavyweight cotton paper on his etching press, creating editions of eachHis imagery encompasses his love of cities such as London and Venice and the countryside and coast of the West Counttry.  Essentially, he is a representational artist, inasmuch as the viewer can recognise the subject of the image.  Romanticism guides his work, both in terms of his fascination with the sudden strangeness of Nature and his interest in capturing timeless moments in cities.
