Annemarie Wright is one of the UK's most exciting young artists. She creates portraits using only handwritten text. Her work has appeared in the New York Post, USA today, The Telegraph, The Mail and Time Out London to name a few, she has also exhibited widely throughout the UK & USA. At this exhibition Annemarie will be presenting a new series of portraits and cityscapes. Stephen Fry recently commented on his portrait saying âClever Annemarie Wright, this is all made of her own handwriting'.
Annemarie will also be presenting âTheir families have been told', a portrait of Tony Blair made up from the names of fallen soldiers from Afghanistan and Iraq, aswell as âBuildings don't go anywhere, they shouldn't be restless' which depicts the Twin Towers comprised of the names of 9/11 Victims. Proceeds from the sale of these works will to be donated to the charity âHelp the Heroes' or âThe National September 11 Memorial & Museum' funds respectively. Annemarie Wright's exhibition at Woolff Gallery will offer us an alternate view. We see these people through her eyes, and are offered a chance to learn a little about them in the process.
This young artist is certainly one to watch for the future.
