SIÂN WRIGHT

Printmaker & Photographer

Siân Wright is an artist who currently works as a Photography Learning Advisor at the University of Lincoln, UK. As a fine art graduate from Loughborough University (2013), she continues to pursue her creative ambitions through residencies and exhibitions across the country. Her work focuses on the monumental sublime in ruinous locations which evoke a sense of the apocalyptic where she seeks to hybridise technologies in photography, printmaking and installation.
