For the 2011 Paper Variables Program artist Chuck Webster returned to the Dieu Donné studios to work in the wet process. For this project the artist translated his fantastical imagery into handmade paper by using an alternating set of stencils and an open approach to color. Each wet sheet was approached with a variant in stencil layout and pigmented pulps to create the variable edition of 25. After the wet process, the artist went back to each individual sheet, working by hand in colored pencil and watercolor, continuing his endless delight in color, form, and drawing.

Chuck Webster is known for his playful quasi-abstract paintings and drawings. Lyrical voluminous forms loosely refer to animals, plants, architecture, and human bodies. Webster's deadpan compositions feature a centered graphic floating nonchalantly against a vibrant, usually monochrome, background. His saturated colors and playful biomorphic forms evoke the spuriously naïve abstractions of Paul Klee and late Matisse, as well as outsider artist Forrest Bess. Although these paintings may seem capricious, they are carefully created and reworked over the course of six to eight months. In more recent work, however, Webster has begun to apply the speed and spontaneity of his drawings to the painting process.

Webster's work has been exhibited in group shows at PS1 Contemporary Art Center, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the San Diego Museum of Art, MOCA Detroit, and the Berkshire Museum. His work is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the MFA Houston.
