Versos Collage 10-03-07

by Leigh Wells

£750.00

A collage by artist Leigh Wells from her ‘Versos’ series. This particular series of collages were made after a chance meeting with a Japanese book documenting the work of a prolific Ikebana artist.

For the collages in this series Leigh worked within a strict framework, taking each photographic book page and combining it with one or more other pages to create compositions of spacial ambiguity and slight confusion.

Spontaneous but highly controlled, showcasing the contrasting qualities and thus producing a superb composition that's both thought provoking and visually stimulating.

13.625 x 10.125”. Collage. Unframed.

American artist Leigh Wells constructs collages and drawings of found materials, painted paper, graphite, and fabric. Removing these materials from their original context and combining them in ways that create spatial and narrative ambiguity. The results are hybrids that embody dissimilar, contrasting qualities: organic/geometric, hard/soft, or dimensional/linear.

Attempts to reconcile or interpret them resemble the mechanisms by which we try to understand and define what we experience internally and in interaction with others. While visually abstract, Leigh considers the resulting works as diagrams or portraits of imagined mental states such as desire, anxiety, sadness, pleasure, or loneliness.
