Virginia Wagner’s work is focused on the conflict between human progress and the natural world. It looks at the impact of a changing climate on human systems as well as our impact on ecosystems. She is interested in documenting the conflicts of our time and asking what can be built from them. Painting is her primary medium. She uses ink and oil paint to play out the tension between order and entropy, contrasting rigid grids with swampy pools and violent spills. Most recently, she has been turning her painted worlds into animations. Raised in a family of biologists, she has a unique perspective from which to observe the psychological and physical effects of our quickly changing planet. Virginia Wagner has been granted residencies through the Guggenheim Works & Process (NY), Brush Creek (WY), Byrdcliffe (NY), VCCA (VA), the Edward Albee Foundation (NY), Jentel Foundation (WY), Ucross (WY), Vermont Studio Center (VT), and Yale Norfolk (CT), and received the 2016 Lotos Prize in Painting.
