Dmitri Wright is an American contemporary artist whose both current and past work has been labeled as abstract impressionist. His method is poetic and lyrical, where all contact is direct with each piece and dedicated to revealing working in the moment of creating. The painting process embodies a representational foundational method. Exploring the traditional subject of landscape, he has integrated the impressionist and expressionist schools with his vision and his training. With a palette composed of juxtaposed colors, Wright selects his colors by evoking the experiences of working in intensity and movement of the light of France’s Provence Cote d’Azur, and in Italy’s Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria, and New England’s coastal regions.
