Dan Coombs has enthustically reviewed the exhibition at Clifford Chance celebrating the publication of Constant Within The Change for www.abstractcritical.com :

Stepladder and Standing Man

Stepladder & Standing Man, 1996, acrylic and oil on canvas, 236 x 206cm

‘There is something powerful about the way Wragg refuses to let go, refuses to give up possession of his motifs. Yet paradoxically the strongly willed nature of Wragg’s paintings is at odds with their open-ended character. They don’t give way to calculation, perfection or resolution and in this can seem frustrating. The hard wrought gestures however begin to make sense when you understand their struggle, despite appearances, is in fact towards a lightness of being, and forms that at first might seem rasping actually give way to a dense pleasure in sensuous immediacy.’
