SOLO SHOW | BRUNSWICK STREET GALLERY JULY 2016
Fallowland is a body of work by Melbourne Artist Amy Wright, framing the premise that for sustained growth there must be a period of laying fallow, a time where human management is removed and the landscape is allowed to be reclaimed by the natural environment to recover it’s nutrient rich makeup. These fallow landscapes often appear barren or untamed, with the occupancy of plant life deemed as weed and waste, and yet resurgence beneath the surface is structured and prolific.
The subjects that have inspired Fallowland are the quiet and forgotten border-scapes - the cliff face or flank of a canal bank; the edge of land meeting ocean, and the discarded and fallow lands of demolished construction. Colour is used as a narrative, where the story is told of the dichotomy between the warm earth shades authentic to a natural terrainand the intense pique of colour that attest to the flippancy of discarded human excess.
Wright draws creative direction from these unoccupied spaces, to present a series of explorative abstract landscapes, in which she interprets the strata of the landscape into a fluid mapping of colour, texture and contour. Reflected in the works is a gentle rhythm that pushes the landscape to a precipice; a space between empty and full, where the viewer looks upon a quiet and personal reverie.

Dusk Landing | Phantom Paradise
GROUP SHOW | SAINT CLOCHE SYDNEY | JUNE 2016
‘Dusk Landing’ is a narrative series by Amy that seeks to capture the initial sensations of exploration upon arriving at a phantom landmass. The unguarded and giddy anticipation of setting foot on a new found paradise is both playful and naive. Works are imbued with a golden, glowing light of the setting sun, emanating a dance of colour and contrast bringing into focus the juxtaposition of deafening human stillness and the drama of light, shape and pattern as a foreign landscape is slowly enveloped in the haze of dusk.
