John Wragg

John Wragg Artist PortraitJohn Wragg is an accomplished artist, born in Stockport, UK. He’s lived and worked in London and Shropshire, as head of department and lecturer in art and design. Throughout his teaching career, he maintained and exhibited his work widely in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Japan.

John’s artwork is mainly abstract and geometric in nature, producing paintings, constructions and prints. Whatever the nature of the imagery, his work seeks to capture four dimensional space through the use of contrasting colours, light, tessellation and optical illusion.

You cannot see the fourth dimension directly and its sheer existence is a matter for conjecture. However, it is a firmly established mathematical and scientific concept with a long history that has influenced many other artists. Although the fourth dimension cannot be perceived directly, it is possible to envisage and model the shadows which 4-D objects would project into and onto 4-D space, which can then be rendered as constructions and images.
