About

Presentation - William Wegman (Colour Photography) Signed and inscribed with title Unique colour Polaroid print, printed 2004 24 x 20 inches The dogs, bewigged and bedecked with outfits and props, demonstrate a wide range of human personas. These works begin to unpick and explore the tensions between façade and identity. In the Polaroids, Wegman enlists clichés and coded objects to call attention to this fact. Wegman utilises the dogs, in their varying degrees of embellishment and whimsy, to demonstrate how identity is often something that is imposed from the outside. Wegman used the large-format Polaroid camera to reimagine the familiar as the fantastical, transforming dogs into abstracted forms, ideas and imagined characters. As witty and shrewdly insightful as many of these works are, they remain sumptuous to behold, with masterful staging and rich, jewel-like colours. Wegman and his troupe of dogs manage all of this contemplation and complication with an unwavering whimsical attitude and sense of humour.
