Wealleans takes histories and images previously considered incompatible or antagonistic and feeds them into his paintings with glee. ‘Feeds’ is the right word, too, because there’s an open-mouthed, full-bellied look to the things he makes. With their meaty sheen, sharp-toothed detailing and bulging polychrome openings, the paintings are literally hungry for our attention.
