Michael Bell-Smith

Artist Michael Bell-Smith (b. 1978) operates in the gaps between animation and painting, utilizing short digital loops to interrogate art-historical, cultural and technological forms. Concerned with the language of representation amplified by digital technology and restrained animation; his work lightly depicts a journey on the edge of abstraction and figuration, creating an impression of inter-galactic travel, skimming over the surface of the earth or soaring over electrified cityscapes. Michael Bell-Smith lives and works in New York City.
