Ingrid V. Wells’s “Merry Kitschmas!” collection is a response to social distancing and isolation due to the pandemic. Each holiday painting is a still life-style celebration of a kitschy object—paired with a bold and brassy feminist title.
“With this new body of work I sought to address the psychological needs of my viewers during this challenging time, particularly those experiencing loneliness and depression. Scientific studies since the late nineties have discovered that the feeling of nostalgia counteracts difficult emotions like loneliness and can even be so powerful as to bring physical warmth to the body. This fascinating psychological phenomena informed my thought process while developing this cheeky collection.”—Ingrid V. Wells
