Paul Andrew Wandless: Stories, Myths & Musings

Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Gallery / Gallery of African American Art

November 7, 2017 – March 3, 2018


Paul Andrew Wandless’s work consists of large clay prints with applied pictorial fragments, and sculptural figures with applied surface imagery that provides narrative expression. The content of the work is based upon a range of personal experience, as well as myth and allegory. Paul Andrew Wandless is an artist, educator and author whose work is distinguished by its combination of clay and printmaking. He attended Minnesota State University-Mankato and the University of Delaware, where James Tanner and Victor Spinsky were important models for the artist to develop his clay-narrative-printmaking hybrids. Born in Florida and raised in Delaware, Wandless currently lives in Chicago, where he teaches at Harold Washington College.
