Gloss:
Wade's use of found imagery links his art with the "postmodern" movement. In reaction to the modernism of the early twentieth century, the postmoderns assert that the idea of progress in the arts is no longer valid and all images of the past can be re-manipulated. Taking old photographs and printing them on linen with applied color, Wade challenges the viewer to look again at the stereotypes of the past.
