Tony Wells

My work may simulate music in its movement and harmony within structure and color schemes. It might reflect something felt visual. The manipulation of old magazines, books and image sources allowed me to pull my media from other peoples' recyclables which inspires resourcefulness. Most of my collages are made up of several hundred separate pieces of paper with carefully chosen image, color and structural properties. I am self-taught.

My other favored medium is pencils. I prefer portraits because the subtle beauty of facial expression is endless because of our acute sensitivity to it. I will combine media and also work digitally using what I have learned from drawing and collage.
