Artist's Statement

"I have never seen Paul Weston watch TV. Paul Weston has seen you watch TV and that includes me. His work is not about how we watch it or even what we watch. It is more about how it is us and we are it. Weston does not condemn or praise those of us who schedule our lives around the box. Nor does he simply report his findings. He is taking a stance. This issue is at hand via the remote control. Weston views the television as an existence on its own. It has good and bad, funny and sad. It controls us and we it. Weston’s work condemns, defies, describes and contradicts our life with our Frankenstein. Fitz Gerald
