Kristopher Wright: Just As I Am
On view through February 19, 2023
Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA)
Boulder, Colorado

Kristopher Wright (Moffat, CO) intertwines the disciplines of painting and printmaking. “Just As I Am” features 16 new, large-scale works by Wright that are filled with color and complexity and center on themes of joy, community, and healing. While his creative process begins with a found photograph, Wright investigates how an image can shapeshift, changing form as it evolves through the hybrid disciplines.

The works on view in “Just As I Am” capture moments within places of sanctuary — backyard barbeques or time together around the kitchen table. The power in his work comes from his ability to translate these anonymous, humble snapshots into compositions that connect and resonate with the viewer in ways that feel deeply personal, and even sacred.
