About this artwork

This screenprinted image brings together circles and lines in an Op Art style pattern exploring illusory depth and perspective. This is the first in a portfolio of six created for the ‘Gagosian Gallery Poster Edition’. Each print was named ‘Untitled Figure’ and numbered from one to six. These prints were initially conceived as a series of posters to be pasted onto internal or external walls. Wright is best known for his temporary wall drawings which are painted over once the exhibition is finished. These works on paper are similarly fragile, as curator Katrina Brown points out, ‘…they can… be rolled up, torn up – they are flimsy. Only when on the wall do they discover their solidity. Like the wall drawings, their hold on the world is slight.’
