Artist Statement

 

No Fun Sleeping Under A Picture Like This: I have a habit of making drawings of just about anything, then trying to rescue them with a phrase. Sometimes it works. Pink Elephants: This photo is a little like one of my drawings in its directness and simplicity, a sort of pictorial equation: grey dog plus sock equals elephant.

 

William Wegman

 

A pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter and writer, William Wegman moves fluidly among various media: from conceptual works to commissioned magazine shots; videos shown in museums to television segments made for Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live; artists' books portraying 19th-century naturalist studies to children's books revealing tongue-in-cheek portraits of town and country life; and from photographic "landscapes" employing his Weimaraner muses to his most recent cycle of landscapes combining found scenic souvenir postcards with drawing, collage and painting.
