Judith Wright: Lines of Confluence - Art Collector

Judith Wright, Lines of confluence [10], 2016–17, acrylic on Japanese paper, 100 x 100 cm. Courtesy the artist and Sophie Gannon Gallery, Melbourne.

Lines of Confluence is a remarkable return to painting for Brisbane-based artist Judith Wright, after a decade spent making four epic sculptural installations – A Wake (exhibited in Contemporary Australia: Women at the Gallery of Modern Art, 2012), A Journey (exhibited in the 18th Biennale of Sydney: All Our Relations at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 2012), Destination and Ancestors. In her new paintings, Wright emphasises her continued focus on the vulnerability of the human condition and the power of relationships. In a nod to her previous career as a ballet dancer, there is a performative aspect to these works on paper: the scale relates to body span, the images relate to bodily form, and the surface – waxed Japanese paper – mimics the skin.
