  • About the Artist

Born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Peter Wegner earned his BA at Yale University. He works in multiple media, ranging from paintings and photography to large-scale installations and wall works. His pieces are included in major public and private collections worldwide. Wegner’s early work focuses on everyday artifacts embedded in popular culture, including typography specimens (the basis for the “American Types” series), commercial paint chips (in the “Remarks on Color” series), and security envelopes (in the “Security” series). When asked in an interview about his interest in such mundane subjects, he answered, “The world is ravishing. Even when you’re focused on nothing, it’s almost too much. From roughly the mid-1990s to early 2000s, he gave form to these ideas in discrete objects such as paintings, works on paper, and artist’s books.
