Oriel Davies Open 2018

Wednesday 21st March 2018

Unfortunately I was unsuccessful on this occasion for the Oriel Davies Open.

Monday 12th February 2018

Today I applied to be part of the Oriel Davies Open for 2018 in Newport. I sent the following images to Oriel Davies as part of my entry.

Artist Statement

This collection of work considers being decoupled from a homeland, dispersed during a subsequent journey of migration. A reflection of an individual state of being and a sense of rootlessness and longing, indicates a sub-conscious social-political element relating to the subject of Diaspora.

An outsider was symbolized using a chair covered with fragments of road maps, juxtaposing rootedness and rootlessness. It was taken on a migratory journey between a host country and a homeland. Ultimately, being cut in two to constitute two parts and divided roots.

Michelle Wright is currently in her final year of study towards a BA(Hons) Fine Art at Coleg Menai in Bangor North Wales. Photography and Video are core aspects of the artwork she produces. She considers all of her work to be of a humanitarian nature and a reflection of the way she sees the world. However, her work subconsciously considers social and political issues that arise as part of the practice she has developed.
