Exhibition: Multimedia Sculpture and Collage by artist Peggy Wright
Natura Motus (latin for “natural motion” or “nature in motion”) integrates movement and the natural environment through multimedia sculpture and collage. Through the use of natural materials such as ivy and vines in combination with materials like wire and paper, Wright captures the grace of bodies moving in space, the play of light on the forest floors, the reflection of the landscape on water, and trees and mountains silhouetted against the sky. She finds inspiration in the varying surfaces of the earth such as textures, patterns, and shapes. Wright uses these influences to create organic structures that relay experiences and articulate concepts including the movements of the earth and the natural cycles of life.
Peggy Wright is the owner of TREATS in Nevada City, CA, and previously has worked as a Delaware Division of the ArtsProgram Specialist, an Artist in Residence Delaware State Arts Council, Visual, Literary and Performing Arts Curriculum Commission for the State of Delaware, and an Arts Educator. She has most recently exhibited in the SYRCL Wild and Scenic Art Exhibition, Nevada City ( 2015 & 2013), and the Crocker Kingsley Exhibit Blue Line Gallery, Roseville, CA (2012).
