Showing: Paul Wackers – “New Alphabet” @ Alice Gallery

New Alphabet, a solo from Paul Wackers will be showing through the rest of the week in Brussels at Alice Gallery. His imagery is almost collage-like in the way he puts together everyday objects, plants, and abstract shapes into one cohesive composition. Along with his signature color-filled paintings that can be seen as a modern take on still life portraits, he also produced some pieces that were in black and white.

Previews: Paul Wackers – “Thank You For Being You” @ Morgan Lehman Gallery

Set to open on Thursday night (June 18th), Thank You For Being You is Paul Wackers’ second solo (see 2011) with Morgan Lehman Gallery. As seen by the preview images included here, the New York-based artist’s work continues to focus on shelves, windows, and interior landscapes that feature objects we are familiar with but also abstract forms – whether it be a few brushstrokes or a dab of spraypaint. This intriguing mix of detailed depiction of everyday objects with non-representational imagery is mirrored in his […]
