Eleanor J G Wright

MA work

Taking inspiration from the peripheral sites experienced in the everyday, urban landscape such as billboard structures and peeling or weathered painted walls, my practice is a response to materiality and space.

I am interested in how surfaces can be activated through their own temporality, and like the exterior spaces that I reference my work remains on the borders of vision, passing and often removable.

By applying two-dimensional materials into and onto architectural facades I explore the relationship between surface and space. Geometric shapes and colourful hues highlight simple, subtle details and create physical and tactile qualities.

Employing a variety of media, from pigmented plaster to peelable paint, I endeavour to create work that questions the nature of surface and that shifts between permanent and temporary.
