Employing intricate references to cultural history, science, religion, and other social phenomena, Wells engages in a dialogue with the unknowable by reinterpreting source material culled from the past. These works which hinge on scaling, cutting, and sculptural placement of disparate elements, emphasize the boundaries of what is knowable and definable, pointing out the mysterious and multi-perspective nature of truth, reality and fiction. Her works on collage present objects and concepts connected with the scavenger hunt that comprises our inherited concepts of the past. She fastidiously examines figures and objects in the reproductions of photographs of sculptures, as well as stains found on scraps of paper, to mine the sometimes accidental artifacts of human experience. The concept of self-knowledge is obfuscated by the evident schism between the mind and body. We are challenged to consider the differences between flesh and stone, imprisonment and freedom, and the sometimes uncomfortable proximity of mystery to the circumscribed space of human relationships and identity.
