Produced by Willem Weismann for We Like Art.
Willem Weismann explores the possibility of paintings acting as ‘information systems’ and stores of meaning. His work explicitly makes connections to other forms of archives, both physical and virtual: the memories we carry in our heads, libraries of books, vast online stores of data, and the stratified layers of history beneath our pavements and soil. The surfaces of Weismann’s paintings make evident his active efforts to make sense of a world in flux.
The edition 'Streetwear' is from a series of works featuring empty clothing, leaving the viewer guessing the last moments of the wearer. Inspired by the laser beam wielding aliens from Steven Spielberg's 'War of the Worlds' and the disintegrating humans leaving behind empty vessels of their clothes.
