CRAFTING A DIFFERENCE VIRTUAL VISIT ON NOW!

Bible Weave by Thurle Wright / jaggedart Gallery

Thurle Wright’s intricate paper works are influenced by language, nature and their systematic and structural properties. Thurle patiently folds, morphs, cuts and contorts her various paper sources, in order to distort and deconstruct their original meaning and purpose. She frequently refers to maps and classical works of literature as her source material, creating compositions which look like fabric or tapestries. The sentences and words of a book are cut, re-ordered, woven, disrupting their original narrative and offering a different meaning. In their original form, by reading a map or a book, the reader is taken on a different type of journey, which is paralleled by the complex transformation that these materials go through as they become artworks. Her paper shapes and the way they are tidily arranged become like exquisite embroidery or fabric, weaving words, places and stories together.

Thurle has exhibited widely with galleries and art fairs across the UK, most notably at the V&A Museum of Childhood, Royal London Hospital and Canary Wharf. She has also showcased work abroad as far as Australia, California, Germany, Paris and Brussels.
