London based artist Ross Bell moved to the “Forest City” in 2010 after a decade of living and making art in Toronto following his completion of an MFA at the University of Guelph in 2000. With the move wood became the predominant material in his studio production. Bell continues to explore established ideas about three-dimensional form that stem from the traditions of Formalist, Minimalist and Post-Minimalist art. His imposing sculptural forms create his own idiosyncratic bridge to straddle issues of Modernity and Postmodernity. Structurally and materially, Bell explores notions of fragmentation, deconstruction and narrative. The combination of fine craftsmanship and raw, untreated surfaces – long a Bell hallmark – offers yet another notional juxtaposition. Ross is represented by Georgia Scherman Projects in Toronto.
