Artist Statement
When an image stands in limbo, between associations, it occupies a flexible place in the viewers mind. In this state he or she labels less and questions more. I search out images that are safe and unsettling, abject and beautiful. I am interested in how an anus can resemble a flower, a mushroom cloud a tree house, a suicide bomber a vulnerable human being.

Artist Bio / CV
Dietrich Wegner was born in Adelaide, Australia to parents in an organization doing global social work similar to that of the Peace Corps. His parent’s work brought his family to Egypt and then America. He spent the later half of my childhood in Houston, Texas, always seeming to live on the border of middleclass and low-income neighborhoods. Wegner moved on to attend the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore and Ohio State’s Graduate Sculpture program. He is currently holding a studio and teaching at Edinboro University in Edinboro, Penssylvania.
