Josh C. Wright
“I create precarious forms that inhabit a sense of uncertainty and instability, fuelled by my own anxieties as an artist living and working on the edges of a city. My practice draws endless inspiration from the city’s physical and conceptual landscape, while my sculptures have an uneasiness and unsteadiness to them; placing bricks, something from our everyday lives that represents structure and security, in a perilous arrangement.”
