William Wegman: New Paintings and Collages

Oct 26 - Nov 30, 1996

For this exhibition, William Wegman has created a group of works on paper which utilize commercial greeting cards. The printed messages and/or graphic styles of these cards are amusingly continued, contradicted, or subverted by the artist. These collages maintain the same light tone and dry wit that Wegman has always displayed in his works on paper.

The recent paintings continue Wegman's practice of adding many subtle, delicate, and sometimes parially hidden areas of incident to large abstract color fields.
