In The art that made me, artists discuss works in the Art Gallery of NSW collection that either inspire, influence or simply delight them. This selection by Helen Wright first appeared in Look – the Gallery’s members magazine.
Interactions between humanity and the natural world often lie at the heart of Sydney-born, Hobart-based artist and printmaker Helen Wright’s work, which features in Real worlds: Dobell Australian Drawing Biennial 2020.
‘I’m delighted to be part of the biennial, as it celebrates the strength and inventive possibilities of drawing within contemporary art practice,’ Wright says. ‘I’m also grateful for the opportunity to exhibit in such a respected institution as it has allowed me to work on a monumental scale and in great depth.’ The following are works Wright has chosen from the Gallery’s collection that resonate with her own practice.
