Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence is very pleased to host Berlin based artist Paul Wesenberg for a three weeks residency in July 2019.
As a painter he has been working for several years on various procedures that model an external influence on the layers of paint on the canvas and, most importantly, the canvas itself. It is about the accelerated aging of the surface, but also about the interventions and destruction. In particular, that could be very promising in order to be able to freely create the contrast between the narrative and the surface. His concrete goal during the residency is to develop a new pictorial surface through substantive modulation of the color and the controlled environmental impact, which can ensure a corresponding material implementation for his subjects.
