Opening reception April 24, 2008 6 – 8 pm

Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Jeffrey
Wells in the project space.
In this exhibition, the artist continues his exploration of perception through subtle means.
The project space is installed with six unique animations, which cast their delicate
imagery upon the walls, floor and furniture. Accompanying the video works are six cprints mounted on sheetrock fragments that line the walls, cryptically referencing the very images being projected. Wells uses motion, with slight movements sometimes barely discernable, to engage and reorient the viewer’s visual faculties. Time plays a role in the artist’s entwined narratives as well, slowly offering more clues as the works unfold.
Wells creates a room within a room, confusing and questioning what is perceived, what is real and what is imagined, ultimately presenting an infinite way of seeing.
Jeffrey Wells lives and works in Joshua Tree, California. He was included in the group show, “Joe Deutch, Jay Heikes, Chris Moukarbel, Kianja Strobert, Jeffrey Wells, curated by Clarissa Dalrymple” at the gallery in 2006. The artist will have a solo show at Shane Campbell Gallery in Oak Park, IL April 27 - July 6, 2008.
Marianne Boesky Gallery is located at 509 West 24th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues. Our hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm. For further
