Opening Reception: Thomas Bell presents What Lies Beneath

August 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Thomas Bell is an active visual, sonic, performance and multimedia artist currently based in St. Petersburg, FL. Integrating mediums across artistic platforms is a primary focus of his work, along with the use of improvisation, collaboration and exploration.

His “weathered or stressed” collage paintings are achieved by applying layers of paper (newsprint, magazines, etc.) between paint and ink, then partially removing layers to reveal the story underneath. The true energy of the work unfolds as it creates a multi layered narrative of society at large. He has recently begun to incorporate singular themes, concepts and subject matter into the works exploring cultural, historical and political conditions, as well as relevant social issues.

Thomas has been an active visual artist over the past two decades creating a body of work that includes painting, sculptures, found object art, collaborations and installations. He has presented work in solo and group exhibitions in NYC, Seattle, Philadelphia, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, San Diego, San Francisco and Mexico and has work in private collections across the United States.
