V1 GALLERY

V1 Gallery represents a select group of emerging and established artists and is committed to introducing art, in all media, to an international audience. Seeing art as a profound and competent media for social and political discourse, the gallery aspires to serve as a platform for art that interacts with the surrounding society.

At Market Art Fair V1 Gallery will bring new works on paper and canvas, both influenced by Wes Lang’s recent meetings and conversations with Ram Dass. A publication will be produced on the occasion of the presentation.

Wes Lang

Wes Lang’s (1972, USA) works often feel like traversing the worst and best of Americana; repulsive and impressive, fascinating and trivial, generous and heartless, hilarious and despairing. Wes Lang re-contextualises American history from a very personal viewpoint, with reference to Native Americans but also biker cultures, country and folk music, bumper sticker quotes as well as jazz, pin-up girls and the living and the dead. Lang paints from a personal perspective but for a common understanding. Wes Lang currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
