Ingrid V. Wells, who received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and art education from Arizona State University's School of Art in 2010, recently released an artist book and had a solo exhibition at contemporary art gallery Glass Rice in San Francisco.
The limited-edition artist book features Wells’ recent small paintings and is now available by contacting the gallery. The works in the book are the culmination of her "30 paintings in 30 days" project. Wells just showed the series, in addition to eight larger oil paintings, in her solo exhibition, "Spectacle."
In the exhibition, Wells investigates “the idea of the feminist spectacle — a topic the artist is particularly concerned with — bringing to light the sticky-sweet, childish portrayal of female identity in society,” according to the Glass Rice website. "Spectacle" has been covered by New York feminist platform GirlTalk HQ, Los Angeles's 360 Magazine and the U.K.'s Creative Boom.
