Rooster Gallery Contemporary Art announces “Action For Freedom, New Works by Lee Wells”, featuring new video action paintings from the “Soul Series".
Lee Wells (born 1971), offers a complex intermix of images which engage issues of war, sexuality, freedom and liberation. Deeply rooted in the history of painting and dialogue of the Avant-garde, “Action For Freedom”, presents portraits of humanity as an attempt to create order within the chaos, confusion and wonder of the early 21st century.
If anyone is in Cornwall, UK on Saturday 1st September, you might like to drop into Tate St.Ives (www.tate.org.uk/stives)for a talk I'm giving on free software and open source as an area of contemporary art. The talk will provide a context for SUPERFLEX's FREE BEER project, which is currently being exhibited at Tate St Ives and within the Public Realm.
