Josh Wells' work's purpose is to contribute to research into the physical manifestation of intense psychological states, exploring different states of the mind through the use of psychic automatism.



Joshua Wells is a figurative neo-expressionist artist in which his practice consists of overlaying a wide range of mediums to reflect the behaviour that the three levels of consciousness stimulates in his mind. Josh's practice aims to emulate this idea of confrontation to the psyche, creating these vulnerable, absurd, raw depictions on the human form. And how the physical manifestation of intense psychological states can be signalled through visible concepts. His work takes this confronting approach to this breaking down of consciousness and the human mind by addressing it in such a raw, interrogating approach which reflects on the viewers.
