Enucleate With Assistance , the centre piece in 'Better Than Life' series, a social commentary, collecting references from vintage photographs and adapting them to modern situations. Attempting to communicate a life seen through lenses and screens (The Glass Eyes) separating us from the reality in what could be called a 'Black Mirror' fashion, teamed with self-expression. Mainly using a monochrome pallet with dashes of colour Wright paints subtle to sinister or even brutal images to depict the narrative with a heavy surreal twist.
The surgeon here working from a you tube tutorial, bring a humorous element. The apple around the neck of the central doctor representing technology and carrying biblical connotations of sin. The Rabbit head doctor on the left turns to glare at the viewer.
