Peter Wegner investigates the interplay between linguistic conventions, systems of classification such as taxonomy and list making, and color perception. “We think we know what a color is, what a word means,” he says. “But the simplest things elude us. They are contingent, defined by circumstances.” His paintings, sculptures, large-scale installations, and photography are each attempts to disrupt viewers’ perceptions of a given color or word, and to draw attention to areas of the perceptual experience that often go unnoticed. For Short Poem About A Cloud (2010), he mounted a white, irregularly gridded object onto the wall, encouraging a meditation on the color white by allowing the wall and the glossy white enamel to interplay before the viewer.
