22nd June – 7th July
Shadyspace is a constructed environment that responds to the visceral and liminal features of a built space. These are haptic and optic features, emotional and intellectual feels, and notions of human connectedness. Wells constructs abstract, two and three-dimensional paintings that principally utilise colour, form, depth, and interstitial space. Shadyspace evolves as daylight recedes: folds, textures, tones and finishes alter. We learn to fear the inner shadow, its unknown content and ambiguities and not look to its resources and peripheries. But here lies the potential for the serenity of sleep, dream and the colours of inner life. Imagination and our capabilities of tapping into unconscious thoughts emerge here. At the very least, there may be nothingness, timelessness and allure.
On Saturday 1 July from 2-2.45 pm, you are welcome to attend a discussion led by the artist about her exhibition and practice.
