Jean Wells is a San Diego-based artist known for her large-scale, eye-dazzling mosaic sculptures inspired by iconic popular culture and brand name products. Wells' art addresses consumerist culture in a highly accessible and awe inspiring manner, yet hints at a more tongue-in-cheek or serious ideology and intent. Working in a similar oeuvre like the artists Andy Warhol, Wayne Thiebaud, and Jeff Koons, Wells explores our growing nostalgia and relationship with everyday Americana subject matter such as ice cream, candy, food and drink, toys, graphic design and themes related to beauty and body image. Wells has established an outstanding exhibition record both regionally and internationally. In recent years, Wells has exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, and the Juan Antonio Perez Simon Collection in Mexico City, among others. Don't miss the unveiling of her most recent work on February 14, a Smart Car sculpture. This exhibition will be on view February 14-June 15, 2014.
