Curtia Wright



Born in Scarborough, Ontario.

Her art practice revolves around the idea that the human body is in constant collaboration with its surroundings; often in ways that exceed the boundaries of physical reality. She creates images that exist on both analog and digital planes through their production and execution; “I believe these alternating layers of production reference the discourse between the human body and environment.” She’s  interested in the way societies perceptions of bodies, specifically black bodies, have the ability to form and deform them while changing their narratives without consent.
