Lacuna 1500801, 2015
13 x 13 inches, mixed media on vintage paper
California artist Leigh Wells constructs mixed media collage-drawings using found images or elements from previous work, stripping them of their original context through editing, cutting and combining. By adding drawn line work or painted geometric shapes and colors she creates hybrid compositions that embody the shifting, ungraspable nature of reality. Lacuna is an ongoing series of spontaneous collage/drawings that Wells creates while in between bodies of larger, more deliberate works. You can sense the immediacy of each piece, and the pairing of lyrical line work, and painted organic shapes create sophisticated and lovely pieces. Wells lives and works in the Bay Area.
