When I hear the word “collage”, I think back to 2nd grade arts & crafts, safety scissors and Elmer’s Glue. Of course, my little artsy heart was dreaming of creating beautiful art, not the actual result of magazine cut-outs wrinkled from using way too much glue. The collage work of Leigh Wells is the stuff my paper moon dreams are made of.
Simple shapes and soft, earthly colors create striking silhouettes that invite you in to explore their mystery.
The organic shapes seem to morph in and out of each other, creating forms that are both familiar and alien.
To see more of Leigh’s work, please visit her website. Hmm.. I’m inspired. Think I just might dust off my scissors and glue.
