Sverre Wyller
Norwegian, b. 1953

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.
