Shattered Mirror Sunset Reflections That Look Like Stained Glass Windows
Broken Mirror/Evening Sky is the newest series from New York based artist Bing Wright. This new body of work marks Wright’s first return to color photography in almost a decade. Bing recently completed a solo exhibition at the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York City; he is also represented by the James Harris Gallery in Seattle who describes the latest series:
Wright photographs sunsets, then projects the images onto mirrors he has broken in the studio. The mirrors are small, measuring just 14 x 11 inches. The artist re-photographs the reflection and then enlarges the image into a large scale format. This beautiful series incorporates Wright’s recurring themes of abstraction and representation – a contrast he masterfully balances by grounding these shards of images into a bold structure. [source]
Wright was born in Seattle in 1958 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Columbia University, New York. His work been exhibited at numerous galleries and can be found in several public collections including: The Museum of Modern Art, the Portland Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase Bank, and Citigroup.
