Luce Artist Quote

“I watch what people do and imagine what they might like to do. Life and society are such that we cannot always say and do what we like. However, in the imaginary world in which my ceramic people live, they can.” Artist’s statement

Luce Artist Biography

Wesley Anderegg sculpts clay figures that are both frightening and humorous, based on a lifetime of watching and listening to people. His earthenware pieces and figural groups suggest an imaginary narrative that often conveys his social and political concerns. His art comments on issues such as pollution, the degradation of the environment, and the role of government in our everyday lives.
