About

JORGE WELLESELEY, Empty Words, 2009 Rusted steel, concrete Sculpture 17.5 x 18 x 12 in Jorge Wellesley (Havana, 1979) Cuban-born artist based in Guttenberg, New Jersey. He received a BFA in Fine Arts from San Alejandro Academy in 1998 and a MFA in Visual Arts from The Higher Institute of Arts (ISA) in 2004, both in Havana, Cuba. Wellesley is a multidisciplinary artist working on painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. His work focuses on the relationship between Truth, Reality and Language. The artist is interested in what is arbitrary about language and miscommunication affecting social relations. This is a starting point for his artworks. In his works, written language, is a visual image that does not match the actual meaning of the word, it is primarily an abstracted figure. For him text is a recourse sometimes used as image and some others as carrier of meaning. There are some symbolic elements that he uses to talk about this kind of crisis of the language like, billboards, weird structures, pencils, signs, empty spaces. The essence of his work has two viewpoints: one is philosophical, about Truth and Reality, and the other is semiotic, about language and art itself. The meaning, in a philosophic, semiotic and artistic sense is the most important thing for him, and the essential matter of his work.
