Roanna Wells

Roanna is interested in the concept of how a greater depth of knowledge, understanding, impact or respect can be learnt from the act of repetition or the study of multiples, whether through a purely process led and abstracted aesthetic, or as an exploration into social, emotional or personal issues.

An intuitive expression of quiet order, subtle structure and collected detail is offset by a curiosity into the spontaneity and inevitable accidental marks or residues of nature, human interaction and the hand made process
