Additional Information

Item details
Born in 1946 in British Columbia, Canada, Jeff Wall has shown internationally for the last twenty-five years and is one of the most intriguing and influential artists working today. His signature works are large-scale narrative photographs in the form of backlit transparencies, mounted in light-boxes in the manner of advertisements at bus stops. Rather than advertising products, Wall''s photographs celebrate moments of everyday life, often ones he has observed while driving around the streets of his native Vancouver and then re-created, using actors in the manner of a film-director.trained as an art-historian, Wall drwas on sources as varied as the old masters, nineteenth century history painting and the writings of Baudelaire for inspiration. One of his best known images recreates Hokusai''s A Gust of Wind in a modern setting; another reference is Death Sardanapulus by Eugene Delacroix. With their references to film, literature and history of art, Wall''s photographs repay close study. Six key words are examined in depth in this survey that includes rich material from new interviews with the artist and an overview of his career to date.
