Art Crush: Paul Wackers’ “Early Romantics” At New Image Art

The aptly titled body of work “Early Romantics” by artist Paul Wackers, which opened at New Image Gallery Saturday night, reflects the carefully composed style of 17th century Dutch and Flemish still life paintings.

Wackers’ juxtaposition of geometric forms against nature offers a notably modern take on the romantic, often floral-centric look of his influencers, artists like Margareta Haverman or Willem Van Aelst. His still lifes almost take on a 3D quality, where the objects placed in the foreground of landscapes resemble hand-made sculptures. Have a look!
