Harry Cory Wright


The Fairhurst Gallery in Norwich will host an exhibition of drawings and paintings by one of Britain’s most celebrated photographers, Harry Cory Wright.
Dual Jet Control will include a selection of the artist’s lesser known works on paper which explore the North Norfolk salt marshes.
Also on exhibition will be Cory Wright’s new screen prints and one of his large-scale landscape photographs.
Cory Wright has been drawing with increasing intensity for the last 7 years. As a counter to the multiplicity afforded by the camera the artist is now looking to explore the landscape with the minimum of gesture; pen on paper and how the application of those gestures opens the door for coincidence and abstraction, aspects unavailable through his photographic process.
It is this duality of intention and chance, control and abandon that offers new and fertile ground for Cory Wright with pen and paper.
‘Jet’ in the exhibition title refers to an increasing coastal obsession of the artist to find small pieces of jet, a rare and highly polishable mineraloid of an intense black.
These scarce fragments are as elusive as they are exquisite, much like the works on exhibition.
Harry Cory Wright was born in 1963 and lives and works in Norfolk. He was recently shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Prize at The National Portrait Gallery for his portrait of Maggi Hambling.
His work was included in Landmark: The Fields of Photography at Somerset House, London (2013) curated by William A. Ewing, also featuring work by Darren Almond, Elger Esser, Hirsohi Sugimoto and Thomas Struth.
Solo exhibitions include Six Hour Place, Creake Abbey (2017), Anglia (2015), Hey Charlie (2013) and Place in Mind (2011), at the Eleven Gallery, London.
The exhibition is on at The Fairhurst Gallery from April 10th through to May 6th, 2018.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a Q & A conducted with the artist in the weeks leading up to the opening.
The gallery, on Bedford Street, is open Tuesday to Saturday, 9.30am to 5.30pm with additional viewings available by appointment.
