Paul Wackers makes paintings that feel like secrets. Secrets in the way that your coffee mug holds a secret, the way your paper weight contains mysteries, or how your plants carry coded intimacies based on the angle you pour the water jug. Wackers’ scenes of domestic interiors capture and magnify the imbued magic found in personal environments through celebrations of form, expressive line, and energetic texture. Hints of a statue, the suggestion of ceramic, and remembrances of book binding flow with a unique kinesthesis in his mindfully composed compositions, oft featuring geometric structures, indicating an ever present exploration of balance.

Wackers work is borne within and out of frame; objects in his paintings often find themselves occupying dimensional space as part of his ceramics practice. As an extension of this oscillation between mediums, we have collaborated with Wackers to produce two new series that utilize archival pigment prints as the base canvas for his hand-embellishments.

As we come to redefine our quotidian in these unprecedented times, artwork like Wackers' new hand-touched series available now on Exhibition A, reminds us that the sacred is in the everyday - that meaning is always closer than we think.

Paul Wackers (b. 1978) has held solo exhibitions at Alice Gallery (Brussels), Morgan Lehman Gallery (New York), Eleanor Harwood Gallery (San Francisco), and The Wall (Berlin) among others. Group exhibitions include presentations at New Image Art (Los Angeles) and Halsey McKay (East Hampton). His work is in the MIMA Museum (Brussels) and many prominent private and public collections including The Stanford University Medical Center Collection. He has also installed a public art mural as part of the James Hotel in New York City.
