Robert Wells | dates unknown | Grannis, AR
The weather started to turn rainy and cold, and my luck for missing artists at home was just as dampening. Luckily, Robert Wells? sculptures are quite visible from the highway. Spiritual in nature, and spanning a distance similar to that of Margaret?s Grocery in Vicksburg, Mississippi…Robert, too, is spreading the word in his own way.
His precise lettering of welded chains is a marvel in its own right. And then there are the three dimensional sculptures, like his globe that are pretty incredible, especially when you consider the weight and nature of these heavy chains that he can craft into beautifully curved lines.
