This exhibition charts a shift from atmospheric, remembered landscapes, reflecting rural idylls of childhood, to complex compositions, which weave together specific points of remembered time.
The exhibition presents as a unified aesthetic, achieved through the consistent exploration and exploitation of landscape space, along with Bell’s intuitive and complex use of colour, light, surface and mark. His works are created directly from thought, offering a powerful, dynamic response to distant remembered experiences. The viewer is given the opportunity to find their way into and discover the paintings, which possess an illusionary quality, achieved through the skilful employment of suggestion and dissipation.
