Willie Anne Wright began her career as a painter. Beginning in the 1970s, her focus shifted to pinhole photography as her primary medium. Pool and Peonies #2 explores Wright’s innovative use of Cibachrome color material and her production of unique direct positive images. Strangely saturated color, visual distortion, and vibrant ideas give rise to these beautiful and insistent objects.
