Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2015

How much can we know about another’s inner world, or even our own? What can others deliberately hide from us?

In her “Visage” series, artist Leigh Wells combines collage, mixed media and found vintage materials to engage in a dialogue with our inner complexity. The resulting artworks challenge, in their way, simplistic world views and reveal a curiosity about the nature of consciousness and human relationships.

“I approach the combination of elements in my work as though I am constructing a feeling, a thought, a relationship—intentionally creating spatial and narrative ambiguity that heightens the work’s expressive tension.”
