@ Almine Rech 
— 

His latest 
works contain 
a multitude of 
information about 
human life as it 
manifests itself 
in the past, the 
present and 
perhaps even 
the future 
as well.” 

Keyword: 
“Assemblage” — 
Wadden makes 
paintings by 
piecing together 
his hand woven 
weavings to 
create large 
scale, hard-edge 
geometric 
abstractions. 

Materials: 

Handwoven fibers, 
wool, cotton and 
acrylic on canvas. 

Process:
 
There’s the 
visual rhythm of 
a machine, but 
the disruptive 
trace of the 
handmade.

A work might
feature a series
of repeated
triangles and
rectangles
(or horizontal,
vertical and
diagonal lines
filled with colour);
each iteration
slightly different
from the one
next to it...
