The straight, truthful work of color master Bruce Wrighton shows in its most inclusive form to date at Laurence Miller Gallery's presentation of "At Home."

"At Home" is the artist's look at a moment in time of the post industrial town of Binghamton, NY. The worn dignified faces, tattered and toorn eateries, taverns, and churches, and threadbare yet honorable domestic spaces profile the faded influence and prosperity of the American City. The fate of Binghamton has repeated through many former industrial giants of the United States. What Wrighton captures in the body of work made between 1986-1988 is distress, a cry for better days that somehow is held up with an inner sense of pride.

This critical body of work by Wrighton has and will continue to resonate through time.

New Yorker.
