EXHIBITION: Richard Wright

Artist Richard Wright -- who is in the running for this year's Turner Prize -- shows new works from today (September 1) at the Gagosian Gallery, London.

Wright is one of only four nominees for the Turner Prize, contemporary art's most prestigious (and controversial) award.

Richard Wright has made his name with large-scale, intricately detailed paintings, which are often created directly onto the walls, ceilings or other architectural spaces. His works on paper are similarly detailed -- he works with what the Gagosian Gallery calls "almost medieval precision", while his vivid colour palette and fondness for gold leaf also recall medieval illuminations.

The exhibition runs until October 3. For more information visit the Gagosian Gallery's website.
