About

Why Miss Lunch?, metal wall sculpture, oxidized brass and bronze. Born in the Netherlands in 1959, and raised in Cambridge, MA, Joe Wheaton is primarily a sculptor. He studied fine art at Alfred University and has worked in a variety of media including pottery, printmaking, photography and most recently, video projections. Wheaton’s work is informed by classical art as well as contemporary art and popular culture. He is interested in symbol and heroic imagery contrasted with the ordinary and commonplace. Wheaton’s sculptural objects are visually pleasing with their unique lines and shapes. A Statement from the Artist: Familiar yet strange, beautiful yet menacing, threatening yet delicate. Reaching and solid, my work traverses many contradictions. As in life, beautiful lines have sharp edges, precarious forms balance with great certainty yet are vulnerable to nature's menacing ways. I am interested in using recognizable materials and relationships in configurations that will serve to re-evaluate how one perceives what might at first seem obvious. Dark forms stand in front of their ever-changing shadows. Lines motion and engage, but are like life, elusive and mysterious.
