WORKS ON PAPER

PAUL WIEGMAN

When I pronounce the word Silence,

I destroy it.

From: The Three Oddest Words by Wislawa Szymborska

 

Paul Wiegman (Groningen,1962) makes drawings and graphic art. And on occasion he ventures into the world of spatial art. This exhibition shows a selection of some abstract works on paper.

 

Minimalist artwork that doesn’t follow a theoretical program. Artwork that refers to itself. The constant thread is an interest in creating spaces on a flat surface. With a minimum of visual means, Wiegman tries to create tension. Tension on the verge of imploding. Less is more, but less to excess could leave you with nothing.

 

When I pronounce the word Silence,

I destroy it.

 

Explaining in words ignores the tacit richness of Wiegman’s artwork and will never be able to fathom it. Theorizing ignores "sensuous" understanding and personal experience. Imagination is never an unambiguous communicable concept.

 

On Sunday 19 February the artist will talk about how he approaches his work and there will be the opportunity to ask questions and have a conversation.

 

Paul Wiegman lives and works in Amsterdam.
