Sverre Wyller incorporates varied materials in his practice, overpainting sign boards and repurposing found objects. In his series “Signs” (2008), he painted on local traffic signs with acrylic; for Wyller, the signs are rich sources of associations—with speed, movement, destinations, and memories—that when removed from their original context provoke personal recollections. Wyller is interested in gesture; his sign works encourage reflection with their slow painted rhythms, and his series “Miramichi” (2009-10) comprises dynamic, graceful sculptures made entirely from scrap materials from a defunct paper mill in Miramichi, Canada.
