Maura Wright explores the significance and cultural relevance of adornment, including clothing and jewelry, and the evidence of stature or limitation in society that those items represent. She uses human forms in her sculptural work and incorporates her memories as well as examines “common perceptions of cultural norms”. Wright earned her BFA at Kansas City Art Institute (2013) and is currently pursuing her MFA at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. International residency programs include travels to Hungary and Denmark.
