Wyman Contemporary

Contemporary American and European photography, paintings, drawings, prints, and ceramics.

We represent American and European Contemporary Artists who work in a variety of different media; painting, photography, drawing, prints, ceramics, multi-media installations.

Inspired by Stieglitz and his circle, we strive to attract collectors, curators, artists and writers in a non- traditional, salon-like setting.

Along with special exhibitions Wyman Contemporary develops independent projects, such as temporary exhibitions placed in various venues; museums, universities and corporate spaces. We are committed to art that has a difficult time falling into specific categories and artists in varying career stages.

FEATURED WORK: "THE AGGRESSIVES" BY JASON FLORIO The Aggressives are a subculture of inner-city lesbians who are unapologetic about their sexuality and who have boldly appropriated the dress code of boys. Many 'pass' as males in their public personae and day-to-day life, enjoying the freedoms usually associated with young urban males. The girls were photographed at an underground Manhattan club during one of their monthly balls. A catwalk competition is held where girls compete for such titles as 'Best Butch Face', 'Best Girl Face', and 'Best Urban Sport Wear'. Born in London, Jason Florio is an award-winning photographer currently based in Malta. For the past 15 years, he has worked as a freelance photojournalist around the globe for publications including The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Newsweek among others. Over his career, Jason has primarily documented under-reported stories about people living on the margins of society and human rights, which earned him a number of awards, including The Magnum Photography Award 2017 for his work on migration. His work is held in many public and private collections and has been showed in solo and group exhibitions around the globe.
