Lee Wagstaff :
Berlin-based artist from London studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in London and Kyoto City University of Arts, Kyoto, Japan. Has exhibited his body, large-format photographic self-portraits, and graphite work at art and performance venues worldwide. One performance was featured in the Ornament Und Abstraction show at the Beyeler Foundation, Basel, Switzerland and he was the first Western artist to be featured in the Art Annual, Kobe, Japan.
My works could be seen as a series of proposals that invite further qualification and refinement. I am interested in how art can be used as a tool to reorder the world around me and how this aesthetic order could have a consoling or agitating effect, or even both. A recurring theme in my work is pattern, I am drawn to patterns that predict and perhaps defy cosmic order. When I make art I think about whether it is still possible to make images and objects that embody ideas of faith, beauty, and truth.’’ -Lee Wagstaff
