Lauritzen Wright considers his work an ongoing play between fine art, craft, and hobby. The artist writes of his experimental work, “I am interested in generating an impromptu reaction to an idea, thought, or experience. I believe in allowing the extended possibilities of landscape, dead images, jokes, art history, and personal history to shape how the pieces develop."
