Edgewater Gallery in Stowe unveils a solo exhibition and new series of etched aluminum paintings by Homer Wells. New Dimensions in Landscapeis on view October 1st through October 28th. There will be an opening reception on Friday, October 5th from 5:00-7:00 pm with an artist talk at 6:00pm. Homer Wells will also be at the Gallery for a demonstration of his techniques on Saturday, October 20th from 1:00-3:00 pm. Expect the unexpected as Wells unveils his new geometric constructions to play with perception and light.
Originally a sign maker by trade, Wells is one of Vermont’s preeminent metal sculptors. He works with recycled metal, using translucent paint over his spun aluminum designs to enhance reflected light. As viewers shift their gaze across the piece, the refraction and reflection create the appearance of clouds and water steadily moving across the panel. Burnishing, brushing, auto paint and sealants make his original pieces distinctive,versatile, and able to be installed indoors or outdoors.
Part artist and part magician, Homer Wells defies logic and conventional notions of 2D art in his aluminum constructions. His pieces take on an almost kinetic quality as light refracts across the surface, producing a 3D effect. Says Wells of this new series, “My work has often been likened to a glass of water or a breath of fresh air. These things do not threaten our beliefs nor do they call us to public action. These landscapes are new in technique and materials, testing what we see with our eyes/retinas and what we see with our minds. I hope the viewer will be encouraged to open the mind to seeing things that can only be seen in the mind’s eye.”
The work in New Dimensions in Landscapeexplores new possibilities beyond the flat 2D plane of the traditional landscape. By micro engraving the surface of the aluminum, air brushing colors and bending, doming, and curving surfaces, he creates a sculptural object that presents as a landscape painting, yet defies that expectation.
Etched patterns become an almost photographic representation of a mountainside and reflection. Says Wells, “It is my hope that the viewer will give each painting a chance to move
and change in the light, finding that position in the room that makes the clouds move or even disappear, the water shimmer, and the sun rise.”
Homer’s Wells’ artistic works have been featured nationally, at the Burning Man Festival and in private collections.
