Catalogue Note

"Elaborate good humor to downright damned foolishness in Western visible arts is scarce. Jack Wesley can deal them with weird eccentric precision – just about as well as any artist whom I know. And he has a long, irreverent history to prove it all. I salute you, dear Jack, as one hell of a sly wise painterly adept." (Dan Flavin as quoted in Alanna Heiss, John Wesley: Paintings 1961-200, New York, 2000, p.152.)
