Wheeler's work defies classification. Dissonance, disjunction and discord describe the disparate themes Wheeler weaves together in his combinations of unexpected imagery. From his earliest exhibition Wheeler has never been reluctant to confront big issues. Social faux pas do not register in Wheeler's practice. He shamelessly makes verbose claims belying his personal opinion on themes including religion, sex and politics.
