Wealleans’ excavations suggest geological strata or delicate millefiori. Cutting chunks from one painting and adding them to the surface of another creates curious palimpsests that mirror the mutable position of the artist himself. Wealleans occupies various guises—painter, performer, offender, worldmaker—gleefully infusing his work with intricate fictions.
