by Earl Wettstein

First I was an adman. That was my career, creative director of my own ad agency. Then I was a playwright, with six produced works on stage. Then, as a volunteer for ten years, I created a statewide organization to teach old people how to die well. In all these tasks, I was telling stories, giving information, planning messages.

And that is what I want my art to do as well. Duchamp said "Unless a painting shocks, it is nothing." He meant that art should have something to say, to not be bland, to not be wallpaper.

I plan my paintings to suggest a story, to have content, to suggest that something is going on there inside that EWettstein™ canvas.

Take a look.   Call me for a Studio visit.
