Brooklyn-based American artist Paul Wackers focuses on the small things that fill our intimate spaces in his first solo exhibition at Toronto’s Narwhal Projects. In the new works (Almost Somewhere), Wackers explores the “current resurgence of the abstract,” the gallery notes.
Presenting small shelf-based arrangements and personal accumulations hemmed in by the bounding boxes of table edges, Wackers manages to express our desire for objects, as well as the complexity of our relationship with them- as custodians and as collectors. There are moments that sigh across his new works with gentle energetic movement. -Narwhal Projects
