About

Morgan Lehman Gallery is pleased to present Thank You For Being You, Paul Wackers’ second solo exhibition with the gallery. In his latest body of work, Wackers continues to play with notions of the familiar, using acrylic and spray paint to create dynamic and increasingly complex visual environments replete with recognizable yet ultimately unknowable objects.

Paul Wackers was born New Haven, Connecticut in 1978. He graduated with his MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, and with his BFA from Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC. Some of Wackers’ solo exhibitions include Narwhal Projects (Toronto, ON), Alice Gallery (Brussels, Belgium), Eleanor Harwood Gallery (San Francisco, CA) and Morgan Lehman Gallery (New York, NY). Paul has also been in several group and two person shows, including New Image Art (Los Angeles, CA), Halsey McKay (East Hampton, NY), Frosch and Portmann (New York, NY), and Headlands Center for the Arts (Sausalito, CA). His work is in many prominent private and public collections including Chevron Corporation and Fidelity Investments.
