BA (Hons) Fine Art
Morgan Wright is a painter located in Norwich. His specialism is in Speculative Evolution/Zoology, a term assigned to a rather mystifying area of science, where scientists and artists build theories on the evolution of life in a wide variety of scenarios. Through his art he debates future, past, and even extra-terrestrial evolution.
His current endeavour has been the designing of a hypothetical planet that orbits our closest neighbouring star, creating teeming ecosystems filled with complex alien lifeforms and otherworldly landscapes, that he brings to life in intricate and highly detailed compositions. Combining inspiration from the great writers of early science fiction and surrealism, and administering traditional painting techniques established by the old masters. His work strikes a flowing balance between scientific realism and complete unconventionality.
