    Wendy Wagner: Look to the Left

    Opening Reception: Thursday, January 24, 6 to 8pm

    Wendy Wagner embraces youthful innocence and creates a distinctive make-believe world using painting, drawing, ceramic, soft sculpture and animation. Working in series, she has themes inspired by childhood, pets, family, and fantasy. Images made of pencil, colored pencil, tinted gesso, acrylic paint, oil paint are transformed to create an intimate and surreal vocabulary infused with personal nostalgia and dreaminess.

    This current body of work shows the emergence of a bubble shape frame, like a “pow” in a cartoon panel. This shape represents a portal or vignette for portraits, other dimensions, or childhood memories. With a crisp, decorative edge, it brings homage to Wagner’s graphic design background and interest in children’s cartoons. Endearing and funny moments from family photographs are referenced as well. These works explore individual personalities. Wagner poetically combines a balance of unflinching realism, abstraction, and humor. With bold bright patterns and by sewing and installing soft sculpture interpretations of certain elements in her paintings, ceramics and animations, she creates an entire “Wendy World.”
