About

Paul Wackers’ work provides a glimpse into an intimate world, where objects and abstractions coalesce into personal and historical narratives. Through the juxtaposition of natural and synthetic textures and objects both mundane and iconic, Wackers’ work acts as both a record of his own domestic routine and surroundings, and as a lens into collective human experience and historical change. Here the everyday and the universal find equal footing in their distillation into singular, evocative artifacts.

Paul Wackers was born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1978. He graduated with his BFA from Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC with a degree in Fine Arts, and earned his MFA in Paintings from the San Francisco Art Institute. Wackers has exhibited nationally and internationally in Belgium, Denmark, Canada, Peru, San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles, CA, and New York, NY.

His work is held in numerous private and public collections, including the Chevron Corporation (San Ramon, CA), Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA), Wellington Management (Boston, MA), New York Presbyterian Hospital (New York, NY), University of Texas Southwest Medical Center (Dallas, TX), and the West Collection (Oaks, PA).
