Abstract (English)

Aiming to uncover the code within the work, Hunter situates C. Wells’ project in the tradition of Modern American painting (and alters his perceptions of painting in the process). Cheetham underscores the social aspects of abstraction in the artist's work. Wells’ texts play with language, sign systems and the history of painting lines on roads. List of works. Biographical notes. 4 bibl. ref.
