Inside Portside – January 2019 – Vaydra Wright
Vaydra Wright’s renowned artwork will be exhibited at Portside Wharf this summer.
Hot on the heels of exhibitions at Agora Gallery New York and the Monaco Yacht Show, Vaydra Wright returns to Australia with her first ever exhibition in Brisbane at Portside Wharf.
Vaydra was taught to appreciate art at an early age. Vaydra’s self-taught background and passion for working with a variety of media came from her mother’s painting style and many visits to Australian art galleries and museums with her as a child.
Vaydra’s work represents life’s patterns and downward spirals, twisted turns, upside downs that have a profound impact on today’s contemporary culture. Vaydra has adapted isolation into her process, working alone with no restrictions and fears; she has had practice stepping back to provide a good critique of her own artwork.
Though Vaydra’s earlier experience was in painting with layers focused on lines and flatness, Vaydra recently moved on to contemporary surrealist digital artwork from sculptural, three-dimensional work. Vaydra uses photo manipulation to change the orientation to transplant the illusion. She aims for a good balance: her collection has both trendy elements and technique principles.
