About

       Henry Landes Bell is a California artist who freely blends different painting and mark-making traditions with the aim of de-hierarchising painting practices to more fully reflect the creative narratives of his experience. As an artist he is fascinated by semiotic breaking points  and contrast; when an object stops being what it is, and becomes a narrative of what it isn’t.
