TAD LAURITZEN WRIGHT: IN A SILENT WAY
David Lusk Gallery Nashville / 516 Hagan St. January 3, 2019 - January 26, 2019
Tad Lauritzen Wright
Tad Lauritzen Wright kicks off 2019 in Nashville with his solo exhibition In a Silent Way. Experiments with process, material and possibility form the basis of Wright’s practice. In this show he has stripped down his imagery to a series of black-outlined white rounded wood forms that stack and dance across the walls.
Following his Memphis exhibition, The Politics of Power, Wright continues his focus on black and white paint and single lines, yet here the final art morphs into cartoon-like sculptures. Some are reminiscent of a house in The Flintstones while others teeter on small feet. Sculpted from single pieces of wood, these rock-like sculptures look simultaneously precarious and sturdy as their forms reach to the ceiling.
Tad Lauritzen Wright, a Texan, received an MFA from Memphis College of Art and a BFA from Nebraska Wesleyan University. Over the past twenty years, he has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the United States. He is a prodigious creator, and his works are in public and private collections around the world.
