‘My paintings depict hand-made objects, props or models that are typically set within a shallow space like a display case. A wooden boat, a toy car made from card or a paper plane – there is usually something simplistic or naïve about the form and these objects are often painted into their backgrounds. The process of making the painting then alternates between observation and intuition.’

Simon Wright studied Fine Art at Newcastle University (1991-1995) and now lives and works in Norfolk. His paintings have featured in a range of group exhibitions across the UK, including the Mostyn Open (2011), the Threadneedle Prize (2011, 2012), the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize (2013,2017), The Discerning Eye and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. In 2014 he had a solo exhibition at Beaux Arts Bath.
