Spotlights is the culmination of work done over the summer of 2016 and the summer of 2017. Consistency is key in this series of ten: each piece is vertically oriented and measures 78 inches by 60 inches, with each composition seemingly a copy of the previous. The works are made through a process of extraction and dilution of the paint. Acrylic paint is mixed to a completely liquid consistency and poured down the surface of the canvas, causing the paint to behave in an atypical way where the individual components making up each colour separate from one another, creating subtle auras and stains as well as accidental blemishes and unanticipated inconsistencies.

Neil Wedman

Neil Wedman

Neil Wedman takes recognizable forms aimed at achieving the appearance of photographs but fall perceptually between representation and abstraction. Wedman utilizes traditional artistic techniques to explore eccentric subjects such as exploding firework factories, dessert rainbows and flying saucers. An artist of the same era as Rodney Graham and Jeff Wall, Wedman’s work has a same penchant for humour, social commentary, and deconstructing photographic art. He shares key attributes with his hometown photo-brethren and has an inclination to question the medium of photography. Wedman has produced photographs, short films, and multi-media projects, but painting stands at the core of his studio practice.
