Artist In Residence
Thru December 2019
Ben Wright



Ben can be found in the studio (by appointment) at Casa De Tesoro and will be participating in many events including the Fall Fine Art and Crafts Festival. 


Ben Wright draws from Native American ceremony, symbolism, and tradition to
attain the traits for which he strives in his life and work; Balance, Connectivity,
and Spirituality. Wright uses powerful imagery juxtaposed with intensely bold
colors. He combines these two qualities with a sophisticated glazing technique
to achieve his impressive creations.  Colors, numbers, and shapes play an
integral and critical role within his work. The medicine wheel and the four
directions of the wind, in particular, all define aspects of Self and teachings that
are vital to the Plain's Indians traditions. For example, the colors red, yellow,
black and white in connection with the Medicine Wheel offers a spiritual and
symbolic meaning to his work. Each color symbolizes the direction of the wind
and the animal spirit whose attributes reflect its inner being.
He often incorporates multi-media elements into his paintings to convey a
special meaning or teaching.
Ben was the first Artist in Residence at the Remington Art Museum in New York
and his work in their permanent collection. He has also exhibited at the Heard
Museum of Phoenix, AZ. His collectors include corporate, museum and private
collectors. Southwest Art Magazine, Art Talk, and U.S. Art have featured his work.
