Balance, connectivity, and spirituality are attributes that Ben Wright strives for in his life and his artwork. Part Cherokee; he draws from Native American ceremony, symbolism, and tradition to attain them. Wright uses powerful imagery, juxtaposed with intensely bold colors, in combination with a sophisticated glazing technique to achieve these impressive creations.
Colors, numbers, and shapes play an integral and critical role in his work. In particular, the medicine wheel and the four directions of the wind i.e., north, south, east and west 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.
His collectors are many and include corporate, museum and private collectors. Southwest Art Magazine, Art Talk and U.S. Art have featured his work.
