Erin K Wright

Erin Wright (b. 1990, Memphis, TN, USA) is a painter and professor of architecture at Woodbury University. She studied fine arts at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA, 2012) and architecture at the University of California, Los Angeles (M. Arch, 2016). Wright’s paintings, which are coloured by the classic still-life genre and appear digitally produced, depict intimate and ruinous relationships between objects and characters that are not present. Through her compositions, Wright explores ideas such as indifference and presentation, examining every detail equivocally. Groupings and relationships between objects are rendered non-hierarchically, becoming blatantly arbitrary with uncanny relationships to their surroundings and contexts.



Wright has participated in numerous exhibitions at Sow & Tailor, Los Angeles (2023), Wedge Gallery, Burbank (2022, 2018); Field Projects, New York (2022); Spring/Break Art Show, Los Angeles (2022); New York Design Week, New York (2021); Trestle Gallery, Brooklyn (2020); Showhouse Jay, Antwerp (2020); 327 Livermore, Los Angeles (2019); Maple Street Construct, Omaha (2018); and Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York (2017). Her work has been featured in ArtMaze Magazine, New American Paintings, AD Magazine, and The New York Times. Wright’s work is part of the NexAir and Wynn Infiniti corporate collections.
