Wellm approaches painting as a question. Drawing on the history of her own painting and on the histories of Painting, her creative process is an ongoing narrative.

About me

Irene Wellm's work is characterized by a surreal and understated darkness. Her emblematic, large-scaled gouache paintings on paper depict figures that blend between recognizable human forms and other animalistic entities extracted from popular folklore and Greek mythology to form collage-like painted tableaux. 

Wellm's new series of monochromatic paintings have evolved from her interest in shedding light on a deeper experience with reality through her inner psyche - her 'second self' - and plays a key role in linking the various suspended narratives she reveals to us through the strangeness of our own dream time and the apparitions that occupy those worlds.
