Says Amy Wright of her work Lost and Surrounded: “The canopy and walls teem with begonias and exotic growth. The effect is one of being blanketed and made small in their company. Warren-like tunnels lead you into openings, that are close with impermeable plant life. Lost and Surrounded captures the memory of turning in a circle to find I was engulfed from all sides by exquisite foliage. I had stepped into a magical botanical world that felt aeons from the modern world.”

 

Amy’s landscapes are represented through rich colour, texture and rhythmic abstract patterning, referencing the structure and details of plants and found objects in their natural environments. She captures the ‘unnoticed details’ in the rich Australian bush, where leaves and roots and trunks and flowers are stripped to their simplest form and colour, then built up again through accents of light and shadow, brushstroke and line work to create landscape paintings of intense depth.
