Utilising a visual sensibility that is dynamic, ordered and geometric, Simon Bell's work electrifies the visual senses. Applied to the ordinary objects or situations of everyday disregard, these become appropriated and re-contextualised; enhancing the plane of the normal to a new plane of curious interest and endless visual investigation. Obsessed with capturing the visual traces of humanity, these traces contain endless narrative possibilities. This approach is also applied to the likes of topologies, cultures and architecture, mixing these to create dynamic and multifaceted images. Not only is Simon interested in this semi-objective, archival like recording method but also in creating abstract work that plays with our perception of representative objectivity and its inherently flawed nature within the photographic medium.
