Jorge Wellesley

As the Covid-19 health crisis continues, the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey is working on ways to bring art to you at home, virtually. This is another installment of our ongoing series we call Cabin Fever Artist Talks. For these, we’ve asked artists to tell us a little about themselves and their work. In some cases, they’ll be answering questions provided by the Art Center. In others, they’ll be showing us around their studio or highlighting works in progress.

For this edition, we hear from Cuban-born artist Jorge Wellesly. Jorge is a multidisciplinary artist working on painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation. His work focuses in the relationship between truth, reality, and language. The artist is interested in what is arbitrary about language and how miscommunication affects social relations.
