Hi, I'm Wesley. And you have reached the right place!
In my work I bring together imagery that relates on the one hand places I have lived and experienced, on the other hand the ghosts of history and the present that impact my life across distances of time and geography. I call back to my upbringing in Freiburg in Germany, in a project housing by a lake and patches of woods, my birthplace on the Greek island Crete, and other urban and rural places I have lived. The gentler memoryscape is joined by allusions to violence and persecution through Germany and the United States throughout history and the present.
