About the Work
Drawing inspiration from Wackers' enduring fascination with vessel forms, a single vessel base print lays the groundwork for each piece. Through the ingenious use of several stencils, Wackers uses spray paint to create uniquely collaged images atop each base print. While the foundational elements remain consistent, the potential outcomes are infinite, making each piece in this edition of 25 distinct. This method encapsulates the essence of Wackers’ broader practice. He has an exceptional ability to transform the familiar – in this case, the recurrent motif of vessels – into something uniquely captivating. Much like his paintings, which embed everyday objects with new narratives and emotions, this edition offers a similar sense of exploration. Each print, though born from the same vessel form, tells its own story, shaped by Wackers' precise and intuitive use of stencils. In this edition, we witness a convergence of Paul Wackers' respect for ancient forms, his modern interpretation of the still life, and his adventurous foray into various mediums and textures. It's a testament to his ability to keep the familiar fresh and the classic contemporary.
Paul Wackers (1978, New Haven, Connecticut) is an esteemed Brooklyn-based artist celebrated for his modern-day revitalization of still life paintings. With a keen eye for transforming ordinary objects into poignant visual stories, Wackers' works bridge the gap between traditional motifs and contemporary techniques. An alumnus of the Corcoran College of Art and Design and the San Francisco Art Institute, he has most recently exhibited solo shows at renowned galleries such as “Sounds Before the Sun Hits" at Jack Hanley Gallery, New York (2023), “The Window Goes Both Ways” at Alice Gallery, Brussels (2023), "The Space We Take" at Eleanor Harwood Gallery, San Francisco (2021), "IN A HOUSE OF SHIFTING FORMS" at Alice Gallery, Brussels (2020), and "Silent Language" at Galeria Impakto, Lima (2019). This evolving artist's narrative skillfully layers history, introspection, and the world around him, making him a notable presence in today's art landscape.
