Piece description from the artist
Cities are as hectic and as complex as our daily lives. The congestion and clutter of our capital city challenges me far more than any clean swept suburban sidewalk.
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.
