The Artful Doubter

Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, 2005
Catalogue essay 24 pp; Script 53 pp 19 ill., softcover with DVD
0-9731926-5-8 . 

Complete 100-minute video artwork included. Limited copies remain!

The Blind Man's Bluff publication and DVD package is a unique outcome of a video installation. The original installation includes a video showing a man watching a monitor, wearing a set of earphones and describing what he sees and hears of Boris Karloff's last film. The viewer never sees the actual movie but instead watches the man respond to the film. One must read the transcribed dialogue while the actor relays Wright's descriptive script for the movie, thus creating an extraordinary cinematic experience as the visual becomes auditory and the auditory visual. The elegant publication includes an essay, the script and the feature length DVD. 

Winner of the 2006 Book Award Multi Media presented by the Ontario Association of Art Galleries.

Tree Corrections

Andrew Wright 2013, Self-Published Collection,  8×10 in, 20×25 cm, 42 pages
"Wright’s way of looking is mediated by the limits of photographic image-making, by the conventions of visual histories, and by the logic of motifs found in nature. In Tree Corrections (2013) the artist engages with iconic motifs of Canadian landscape painting, such as the windswept jack pine, a figure popularized by the Group of Seven landscapes in the early twentieth century. Returning to one of the Group’s most recognizable locales, Wright photographed the trees surrounding Georgian Bay; some fallen, some dying, some barren and bent, others evergreen or leafy. Using the camera, Wright alters the perspective so that the windswept trees appear at a perpendicular angle in relation to the photograph’s frame."

Untitled Photographs

Andrew Wright 2013, Self-Published Collection. 13×11 in, 33×28 cm, 28 pages
"Wright’s recent work reveals his ongoing interest in seeing the exterior world as a series of props and indeterminate spaces with ambiguous scale. Precisely composed using artificial light and limited depth of field, these images of granite rock formations, in tension with black skies, oscillate between realism and fiction."
