A Swiss outsider art collection welcomes you



Saffron Wright

Instead of a biography, I received a text from Barrington Farm about your work, to my regret, little about you and also no photo of the artist ...
Born in 1995 in the county of Norfolk, England, Saffron is a prolific artist and creates drawings, prints, textiles and paintings using bold lines and vivid colours. Her artworks explore aspects of her personal experience and an interest in people, popular culture, animals and pattern. Her early works feature a series of small delicate drawings of cats with elongated claws positioned at the top of a background of alternately coloured light and dark green stripes made with felt pen on paper. These images reveal Saffron's natural ability with composition and colour, her love of animals, but also hint at a possible uncertainty of a world yet to be discovered.Her current work includes joyous representations of everyday things around her. Often using books, catalogues of products or internet searches for inspiration, Saffron will regularly create a series of drawings until she has exhausted the subject matter. Recent collections include portraits of staff and colleagues, classic children’s toys, food items, animals from the farm where she works and Disney films. She mostly works in felt pen or Sharpie on paper as it gives an immediate effect and allows her imagination the freedom to go wherever it chooses. Saffron attends the supported Art Barn studio at the Barrington Farm centre for adults with learning difficulties in Norfolk, UK since 2013. She has exhibited at several venues in Norfolk and continues to create exciting work that follows her own personal journey. This small drawing was purchased at the Outsider Art Fair 2016 in Paris.
