FIELDS OF FABRIC
“Field of Possibilities,” an exhibit by local artist Jameson Wells, is
1 in Studio 238 at the Harwood Museum of Art, 238 Ledoux Street.
Wells’ collages include remnants of canvas rolls, old jeans, random cut paper and fabrics, pieces of manufactured borders, ricrac, lace, selvages, seams and edges. The process of making the paintings is inherent in the design of the painting itself, where pieces are added, subtracted, woven, painted or drawn around or on or under, or are actually illusory.
