Giving in to Live the Experience.

Giving in to Live the Experience. By Paul Wackers. Seems Books, 2009. 24pp., illustrated throughout, 9,5x12,5". Edition of 500 copies.

Book description:

'Giving in to Live the Experience' was published to accompany artist Paul Wackers' Tournesol Award exhibition at The Luggage Store (July 10th-August 8 2009).

"Wackers’ paintings and drawings are neither realistic nor entirely fantastical. They span the genres of landscape painting and still life; representation and abstraction.

He depicts the remnants of human activity, but people are noticeably absent from his compositions.

He focuses instead on what is left behind, or perhaps abandoned: facsimiles of the natural world, vacant interiors, and clusters of accumulated objects."

Quote from here.
