Piece description from the artist
A friend of mine in Seattle had a red truck, and he was very popular on weekends. He ate a lot of pizza and drank a lot of beer, but he had a strong back and a generous spirit.
With clean draftsmanship, skilled editing, and her palette of the moment, Ashley Wells transforms humble objects and overlooked scenes into thoughtful essays on the pleasures of paying attention. After moving thirty seven times, the artist claims she’s from “nowhere” and says that this restlessness is what prompts her to use her art to impose “order on a world I can’t contain otherwise.” Wells has exhibited her work throughout the United States, The Netherlands and China.
