Questioning the reality of photography, Wexler digitally and physically manipulates his images. He then adds more depth and texture to his printed compositions with graphite pencil, matte and wax finishes, so that they hover somewhere between photography and drawing.
For over 40 years, Allan Wexler has combined the languages of fine and contemporary art, architecture, and drawing to create highly inventive work that wryly pulls apart and reconstructs the edifices of our everyday life. Reducing the built environment into archetypal structures that are simple in form, yet rigorous, conceptually and compositionally, Wexler excavates uninhabitable spaces within a realm we thought was already defined, and invites our imaginations to wander.
