Justin Wagher: Where I Come From

November 10- December 28, 2018

This exhibition by St. Petersburg native, Justin Wagher, explores the connection between home and place. He begins by looking around at his environment photographing scenes that represent his perception of “home.” These everyday, sometimes banal, scenes become slightly abstracted paintings imbued with a sense of nostalgia and recognition.

“The title ‘Where I Come From’ was an attempt to put these pieces into context with what I felt home looked like; not necessarily a whole interpretation of the city but more of the places and sights I find comfort from- where I find my place to be.

Ideally, I hope to share a humbling experience, a visual representation of the people and places, the streets and alleys, the often overlooked surroundings that are St. Petersburg- that are my home.”

-Justin Wagher
