About

Siân Wright works to conserve places and materials that are often undervalued through a combination of photography, installation and sculpture. By drawing the viewers attention to the overlooked, she seeks to raise awareness of the aesthetic qualities of things that may have lost their functional status and their past histories. She is currently studying MA Fine Art at the University of Lincoln where she continues to work on developing her creative and professional practice.
