Filtered light illuminates a polished table and still life in this skilled trompe l'oeil painting by David T. Wright. Born in Coventry England, Wright completed a BFA at the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England, in 1970 followed by an MFA at the University of Reading, England, in 1972. Wright’s ability to merge a trompe l’oeil realism with impressionist inspired brushwork in brilliant colour has garnered him multiple commissions including mural works in England, Canada and Mexico. Wright’s paintings have been acquired by many corporate and private collections. Since 1984 he has taught painting and drawing at art schools across Ontario including the Art Gallery of Ontario, York University, McMaster University and Brock University.
