Paul Wackers is a Brooklyn-based artist that invents esoteric collections of plants, art, and objects for his large-scale paintings. Taking intimate and sometimes abstracted objects from everyday life and arranging them in alternating states of chaos and order, Paul suggests that there is no right way to have a "collection". In his work, the unrecognizable seems weirdly familiar, and rooms that are devoid of human presence are anything but uninhabited.
Paul Wackers (b. 1978) has exhibited at Narwhal Projects, Toronto, Alice Gallery, Brussels, Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York, New Image Art, Los Angeles, and at the Nordic Artist's Centre Dale in Sunnfjord, Norway.
