Angela Wright

It is the very ordinary, unlovely spaces of the city that interest me, not the already romantic or beautiful. We often don’t see the unremarkable building or the patterns created by shutters, doors, fences, pillars or other necessities of urban life.

Nearly all my work is composed from things, colours, textures and people that I see around me every day. A tree is host to a flock of rubbish; light on windows in blocks of flats form rich grid patterns; the constant dramas of adolescent life are acted out; a man awkwardly takes a baby for a walk and layers of texture and shade accumulate and change as old buildings decay and are replaced by the new.

In this exhibition I have chosen to show a selection of work as a printmaker, specifically in screenprints. Some of these were inspired by aspects of the soon to be demolished Royal Liverpool Hospital building.
