Neil Wedman - Artist
Saturday, June 10, 2006

Not too long ago I went into Neil Wedman's studio and watched him paint this wonderful female nude. I returned a few days later to find that he had painted bridal clothes on her. "This is the way I always do it. This is for a show called Brides." It is a singular pleasure that my photographic studio is in the same building and on the same floor as Neil Wedman. He is a conceptual or thematic painter who can really paint. He has the technique behind his ideas. Currently he is planning a show on flying saucers. I have known Wedman for at least 15 years and I always know when he is around. You can hear him first. He has an infectious and extraordinarily loud laugh. We both share an interest in old movies. Lately we have been sharing notes on our experience with the Turner Classic Movies TV channel. Wedman told me last week, "Some days I want to go right home to watch." Wedman is an elegant but fussy dresser. His shoes are always polished.
