Paul Wackers Biography

Paul Wackers paints with the tradition of the still life in mind. Window ledges and shelving units busy with potted plants, colorful vessels, and abstract knicknacks fill his compositions, which seem to vibrate with the activity of someone’s everyday routine. In Grow in Place and In the Waiting Room, Wackers focuses this ability to distill order from the chaos of a flower arrangement – capturing the levity of a field in motion to contrast the tightly cropped interior space of each two-toned backdrop.

Paul Wackers 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. Wackers lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

American, b. 1978
