Thurle Wright

Thurle Wright works with books, maps and words on paper.

Her delicate paper reconstructions stem from an interest in the systems and structures of language. As well as the ordering of knowledge and the collecting, storing and accessing of words.

She cuts, folds, weaves and stitches lines of words into a new visual format. Traces of the original mingle with personal, often playful or poetic interpretations.

Originally from Zimbabwe, Thurle works from her studio in Folkestone’s Creative Quarter.

She has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally, including Collect2019 at the Saatchi Gallery, the Bookarts Triennial in Lithuania, Deptford X, and Brussels Art on Paper.

Numerous residencies include work for the V&A Museum of Childhood, Perth Central School of Art and Design, Camberwell Arts and various schools and colleges in the UK.

Her work is held public and private collections including Brisbane State Library

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
