Self-taught Milwaukee artist Della Wells is a visual storyteller. Fascinated by myths and fairy tales with hidden meanings, Wells creates layered images from found objects. Her Stories, My Dreams showcases a selection of Wells’ colorful assemblages, drawings, and hand-made dolls inspired by personal narratives, political struggles, and imaginary tales. Combining her interest in African American history, gender studies, and theology, Wells employs potent symbolism to give voice to contemporary issues of race and gender.
