Paul Wackers most recent solo show is one of the best painting shows I’ve seen in San Francisco in awhile. Not to mention, one of Wackers’ strongest bodies of work yet.

In this grouping, he presents us with the interiors of rooms and still lives placed in vitrines and in the outdoors, thus drawing our attention to the collections we harbor in our homes and the objects we may encounter outdoors. His work is full of contradiction, using painterly and unconventional mark-making techniques which I have always been drawn to. Wackers’ show is up until May 15 at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in San Francisco.
