Birbeck Road Night by William Wright
Can hardly wait for The Art Stable’s
new show William Wright: Places which opens tomorrow (3 June).
These are beautiful, poignant, arresting paintings which need to be seen in the flesh.
The artist Tom Hammick describes Wright’s work as poetry on canvas.
Hammick says: ‘William Wright’s paintings and drawings have for me the same intensity as poems that conjure visual imagery of the world we live in. He is a poet. They have a melancholic ache that comes from someone who is a profound observer. They are wonderfully quiet and distilled, all extraneous detail taken out of them.’

Places runs at The Art Stable in Child Okeford until 1 July.
