Marcus Connolly Blog 5 - Peter Wegner
The next artist i would like to discuss is the artist Peter Wegner. Peter is a painter, installation artist, photographer, sculpture artist, and a drawing artist. however i would like to discuss Peter's photographic series BUILDINGS MADE OF SKY from 2012. "Between the buildings of a city, another city. it's invisible, a city no one built. In this city buildings are not made from brick or steel, but of sky." In this series Peter noticed something about the buildings of New York that no one else did, or if they did didnt document as well as Peter did. He noticed that when inverted, the negative space created by the towering skyscrapers of the city reflected the skyscrapers that were physically there and created skyscrapers out of nothing but sky.
