"Russel Wright, like Peter Bynum, experimented with light, elements of nature, the effects of layering, and new materials at Manitoga, pushing boundaries and our expectations. Both Manitoga and Peter’s ethereal illuminated paintings offer an immersive experience."
Executive Director and Founder of Manitoga's Artist Residency Program.
