My work concerns the darkness behind the ordinary, the hidden behind the seen. My practice draws on psychology, pop culture, politics, and the occult, journeying the murky borders of our culture of excess. Weird humour, the carnivalesque and the macabre are at play, bringing us a warped alien perspective.
Using diverse media and techniques, I create artworks in series and develop low-key participatory projects. My work is intentionally accessible, containing masked layers of meaning, designed to tap into your subconscious mind.
‘A staggering array of exceedingly beautiful, powerful, subversive and disturbing yet darkly comic work ... Sig Waller belongs to that small body of contemporary artists who have something important to say.’
‘Freely embracing the darkness, Waller's transgressive visions are satirical and captivating, smart and alluring.’
‘Sig Waller is one of the most powerful, provoking and inspiring living artists I know.’
