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.
With a multidisciplinary approach, I create artworks in series, using appropriation and found materials as well as the classic medium of paint. My art questions the established patriarchal order, the social roles of women and the clichés around traditional family life and romantic love.
‘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.’
— Paul Gallagher, Dangerous Minds
‘Freely embracing the darkness, Waller's transgressive visions are satirical and captivating, smart and alluring.’
— Paul Sorene, Flashbak
‘Sinnbilder für ein unsinniges Weltgeschehen, Visionen des Horrors, Allegorien auf eine ferngesteuerte Welt, in der jeder Anspruch auf Kindlichkeit besetzt ist. ’
— Lisa Grotz, Die Welt
