About Paul Wackers
Paul Wackers is a San Francisco-based artist. His paintings and drawings feature 'non-spaces' archetypal interiors and landscapes that seem composed from a combination of dreams and recollected visions.
Wackers was born in 1978 in New Haven, Connecticut, earned a BFA from Corcoran College of Art and Design, and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. He received the Tournesol Award from the Headlands Center for the Arts in 2008, and has had solo exhibitions at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in San Francisco. He has been featured in group exhibitions at Cell Project Space in London, Alice Gallery in Brussels, Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, Samson Projects in Boston, and Aqua Miami with Adobe Books Backroom Gallery.
About Seems Books
Seems is an independent publisher of small-run art books based in New York. Our goal is to make original art accessible to everyone. We create books that start dialog and conversation, with a high priority placed on quality and content. We publish a hybrid of zines and monographs, with each book in a solo show format: one artist with a free reign throughout. The name Seems comes from the idea that art and design are not black and white, but gray; there is no absolute; therefore they demand dialog and debate. Seems has also participated in book exhibitions in South Africa, Italy, Canada, San Francisco, and New York.
