Wesley T. Wright’s stoneware sculptures put surreal touches on the natural world. His new show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery, titled “Ark of Man,” highlights the artist’s interest in folklore. The show runs April 5-28 at the Los Angeles venue. (Wright was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.)
“His fascination with alchemy and creating systems of logical order are realized through his carefully curated microcosms encased in glass ‘biodomes’ and adhered to his ceramic creatures,” the gallery says. “His use of earthen materials (clay, glass, and engobe) combined with man-made materials (turf, resin, and other found objects) presents the notion of humans intervening in order to restore Earth’s environment to its natural state.”
