Scarlett Archibald-Wright

Much of Scarlett Archibald-Wright’s work is concerned with the natural world; more specifically it looks into plant species and their symbolic meaning. The act of walking is the starting point for her research, it allows for the natural connection between artist and the subject to form organically. Researching into the history, symbolism, traditions and mythology of species attracts her and is the focal point of her practice. Using her research as a platform to inform her sculptures, Archibald-Wright often casts directly from the plants themselves, creating a connection between the manmade and the natural. Her fascination with the natural world further extends to museology, which she uses as a platform to present her sculptures.
