“When an image stands in limbo, between associations, it occupies a flexible place in our mind. Wegner creates images that are safe and unsettling, abject and beautiful…The ephemeral beauty of a mushroom cloud is frightening, how it floats for a minute, delicate and blooming, yet remains chaotic and utterly destructive. We experience a contradiction between what our eyes enjoy and what our mind knows.”

Spotted one of the seascapes of artist Paul Bennett whilst on holiday in St Ives last week.
The beautiful contrast of finely rendered mist with coarse-textured brushwork gives the paintings a sense of brooding calm which really needs to be seen ‘in the flesh’ to be fully experienced.
