Emilie Wright is a Melbourne based artist, whose broad studio practice spans a range of mediums, with a particular focus on drawing, sculpture, video and installation. Through a critical engagement with crude materials, elemental components, and alchemical process, her work expands upon notions of drawing through large-scale installations that explore materiality, impermanence, transformation and entropy.
Wright obtained a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) at Monash University, having completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Expanded Studio Practice) RMIT.
Prior to commencing her BFA, Emilie founded ARI Bower Gallery in 2010, working as Curator and Director until 2013. She currently works as Lead Artist with Arts Access Victoria.
