About the art series:

While the info on my site says “A series inspired by the reflection of light on fog, the nostalgia of rural scenery, film noir, mystery and the stills from episode 1 of the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer.” I’d like to add to that by saying… this series, like the majority of my work reflect my anxiety. The dark shadows and lack of color are depression, the individual wandering figures are loneliness, the headlights/spotlights are hope. However, that hope has a lurking feel. Sometimes it’s hard to reach for the light – the fear of the unknown has a stronger pull.

About the Artist:

An introspective, introverted empathy, full of anxiety and 90s kid nostalgia, Jennifer Nichole Wells creates images full of desolation, malcontent and longing by transforming her hand-built miniature tableaus through her camera lens. Her images draw influence from her midwestern roots and Florida youth.
Jennifer graduated from the University of North Florida in the Spring of 2013 with a Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Photography, and minors in Art History and Professional Education. She resides in Jacksonville, FL with her boyfriend and cat.
“Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.” -Edward Hopper
I’m by no means saying I’m a great artist with the above, but I strive to be. And I think it’s important to realize that we all can create unique art because of our unique lives. Sometimes our mental woes make us understand a side of life others cannot.
