Abstract (English)

This exhibition's large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings address issues of social allegory, myth, irony and death. The brief essay draws an analogy between Wedman's investigation of belief structures and the larger search on the part of West coast artists to identify an authentic experience in an isolated environment where historic elements are alien and displaced. Reflecting the exhibition, the catalogue culminates in Wedman's large, 18-panel drawing, "Death Ray" (1987).
