to 5 PM
1300 Gendy Street , Fort Worth, TX
Start date: Wednesday, June 6, 2012
End Date: Friday, June 29, 2012
Scott Wright was born in the final year of the decade best known for its free love, hippie lifestyle, or as his (surprisingly ordinary) parents called it, the Sexties. Named after the protagonist in the popular Bobby Goldsboro song, "Watchin' Scottie Grow" Wright grew up in an environment which encouraged imagination, yet was grounded by a strong-willed, crafty grandmother who instilled an appreciation and acknowledgment of history and family lineage. These early influences imprinted upon Wright a dichotomy of perspectives, which can be seen reflected in his sculptural assemblage panels.
After completing his formal art instruction at the University of North Texas, he became free of the constraints of a contemporary art education, and threw himself into creating his imaginary storytelling panels. Utilizing rescued photographs & salvaged, found objects, his work captures remembrance and promise, balancing a forgotten moment of life against what fate ultimately had in store. His work is full of fact and fiction, life and loss, and all that is unique and ordinary about our lives, yet preserves the immortality of us all.
