Lisa Wright RWA

Lisa Wright trained in the classical tradition at the Royal Academy Schools and is grounded in the daily discipline of drawing and emotional engagement with her subject. Wright’s large and ambitious paintings have mined the intriguing and distinctly autobiographical theme of her own children’s childhood- at the swimming pool, on the beach etc- with an acute and unsentimental directness. In more recent years her work has represented the ‘universal’ child and the physiological independence that begins to surface in the liminal state of puberty.

Lisa has recently won first place in the significant Threadneedle Art Prize for 2013. Lisa also won the NOAC prize in 2009 and the Hunting Art Prize 2003 – her work has been selected for exhibitions including Art Now Cornwall at Tate St Ives (2007) and she has been an exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition for the past 20 years.
