Richard Wright


Richard Wright, The colours ran, 1973-92, Mixed media on paper and glass, at BCB Art, in Hudson, NY.

Richard Wright has two framed works-on-paper at BCB Art... the frame, or at least the glass, is part of the piece... he's painted and scratched/etched onto the glass, as well as painted, collaged, and cut into the matting. The gallerist said he works on things for a looong time... this piece (detailed below) is dated 1973-92.







Richard Wright
This is the second piece.... I wake up at 2:40 every morning, 1992-95. It has some writing along the sides -

I wake up at 2:40 every morning.
I've been having a lot of dreams.
16 September 1995.
8 January 1992.
Richard T. Wright.

I can't find any more information about this artist.

Nice post! I used to work with Richard. I think he lives in NC now...

You are right Martin. There isn't anything available on this guy. I wish I had time to write long reviews of shows in the Hudson gallery corridor, to become a publicist of sorts for the scene, but I just don't have the time. If I was independently wealthy or had taken an early retirement I would spend a lot more time writing about art. Right now I am the only one working in our household. I really think it is great that you find art you like or find interesting and share it with your large blog audience. I am not trying to kiss your a--. Why would I? I found a bunch of stuff on this other artist named Richard Wright who does minimalist wall paintings among other things. The gallery owners in Hudson should be commended for taking the time to 'discover' and display a lot of worthwhile art.

jon - whoa, you know him! do you know if he has a website, or is on any other gallery sites?

eric - have you read any nadine wasserman? she writes about a lot of stuff up here. i see her in the "metroland" (out of albany, i think)... which you can find in saratoga. it's one of those free weekly papers. she's pretty good.

here is a link to the other artist named richard wright, the one referenced by eric -

he's in the carnegie "life on mars" show. i remember he used to do stuff with lots of lines, on the wall.

I doubt that he has another gallery or a website, but I suppose it's possible. I can try to get some contact for you...we'll see. I'd be happy to send you some pics of other works as well. Great guy.

We only get the Times Union, The Post Star, and the News Enterprise in Olmstedville, plus the big city papers, but not Metroland. We are about an hour away from Saratoga. Of course I will try to read some of Wasserman's stuff online. It would be nice to write for a local paper, something put out by Denton Publishing over the summer, but if they aren't going to pay me anything I can't sacrifice the time needed to do it. Melville figured out a way to spend hours and hours writing and reading when at work in the custom's house, a job he got through family connections, so I shouldn't complain.

Here is an example of something from a section of the News Enterprise called "BakerMillsNews"

"Alonzo, Aaron and Ian Conlon took Grandma Jerstie out for desert on Friday night for Mother's Day."

I glanced at some of Nadine Wasserman's reviews and I will look at them more seriously later on. She has an entertaining sweeping writing style. Clearly she knows a lot about many different things and her writing style is quite conversational and clear. She slowly introduces the art being scrutinized. Usually she doesn't start writing about the specific exhibition she is reviewing until the third paragraph in. I can see why her work would go over well with editors and readers.

Martin said...

i'm forgetting what reviews exactly but i remember reading a couple and being impressed by how tough she was.

ericgelber said...

Her reviews seem to be overwhlemingly positive and supportive of the art community she covers but she is definitely level headed. Saratoga is a different breed when compared to their geographic surroundings. They pride themselves on their cultural venues and they have a huge tourist industry. Culture and tourism go together.

Martin said...

i don't think she's in saratoga... the metroland is out of albany. i mentioned saratoga because it is the nearest distribution point for you that i'm aware of.

it's at borders and uncommon grounds.

Thanks for the information MArtin. I am taking amtrak from saratoga springs on friday morning. they have a little gallery in the train/bus depot, which looks like a recent construction. I stumbl;ed upon an opening there the last time I took a train. The artist was sitting ina corner with a few friends and there is was an 8x11 press release and cheese fruit and wine on this long table with a plastic tablecloth on it. I liked maybe one or two paintings in the show and toyed with the idea of reviewing it for artcritical (I am pretty sure David would have been game but who knows) but I didn't do it because I disliked too many of them. You have to live in the boonies in upstate ny to appreciate the pleasure of stumbling upon an isolated art gallery. stumbling upon art in the midst of a workaday mundane setting brings pleasure and is a surprise. the sense of surprise that is involved in the occurrence makes me think harder and look harder at the art. doesn't make sense i know. later...
