“Wesley’s painting looks like nothing else out there. …the most conspicuous characteristics of his work from the seventies on—its insistent flatness, powdered pastel palette, cartoon/cinematographic narratives, embrace of the sexually charged encounter, sophisticated anthropomorphism, and mannered drawing— have enormous appeal amid a digital revolution that has provoked yet another rethinking of the medium.” Linda Norden Parkett No. 62, 2001
