if you ever meet the painter paul wackers, you will notice a quiet charm about him. he has an air that leaves you always wanting more from him. he's quiet, but not to be mistaken for shy. there is a mischievous stillness about him. and this stillness is apparant in much of paul's work. his second solo show, stand still like a hummingbird, opens tonight at eleanor harwood gallery in sf. if you have an opportunity i would swing on by. paul's new work is really beautiful. like his older work, there is a still beauty, yet w/ these new paintings there is a definite brightness coming through loud and clear.
"in my paintings i try to create the feeling of getting lost in the thoughts that are easily ignored or put aside. many of my paintings will come from moments seen in films or articles read in the newspaper or simply from a walk down the street. the images tend to be of non-places where the specifics of them are not important but how the elements within the picture interact as parts of another world that is sometimes jarringly familiar to our own. it might be seconds away from becoming reality or lifetimes in the past as a fleeting memory." - paul wackers.
