John Wentz The Form Appears Print Release

1xRUN are excited to welcome back California artist John Wentz as he joins them for his second RUN with The Form Appears. In addition John Wentz has also brought them 3 small studies along with 3 original paintings from his recent series Spectra.

"This is part of a series I started working on in July of 2012 called Spectra. On these pieces I really wanted to explore color & texture and shy away a bit from formal constraints. I spent a lot of time looking at war photos on the internet, and after awhile, I became interested in this cycle of self destruction that we, as human beings, perpetuate. It kind of made me think of that scene in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” where the ape discovers that the bone could be used as a weapon. It’s as if as soon as we created tools we started harming each other and, ultimately, ourselves. I just began to wonder if it is something that is part & parcel to being human…part of who we are and it cannot be undone." - John Wentz

The Form Appears is a 18 x 14 Inches Archival Pigment Print on 300gsm Fine Art Paper with a signed and numbered edition of 75
