Andrew Wright’s artistic practice resides at the intersection of traditional and conceptual forms of art-making. Wright’s use of photography is decidedly non-conventional as it challenges lyricism and traditional pictorial aims and favours an exploratory, evocative approach that is “pre-occupied with ontologies of optical technologies and representational systems.” In 2010 he was awarded a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation for high resolution digital capture and has received grants from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Ottawa, and the Waterloo Regional Arts Fund. Wright’s work has received critical acclaim in publications such as Canadian Art, Border Crossings, The Globe & Mail, the Toronto Star, and Maclean’s Magazine.
