Wesley Anderegg is known for his colorful earthenware, figurative sculptures of people and humanoid figures. Anderegg is inspired by primitive clay figure sculptures. He depicts men and women playing instruments, praying, surfing and other every day activities. Some of his sculptures depict sports figures, narratives and human anomalies.
Anderegg’s Headspinners series is composed of two oval shapes, the lower half depicting two bodies on either side and the upper half depicting two heads. The top half can spin so the heads and bodies are mismatched. The bold graphic patterns, colors and facial expressions on each side are opposites creating variant relationship with each move. Anderegg’s plates similarly illustrate portraits. His surface decoration is naïve, colorful and cartoon-like giving his work a whimsical, imaginary and sometimes unsettling quality.
