"Painting, for me, is a dynamic process of self-exploration and a constructive way to give form and meaningful expression to an experience. I investigate problems on a personal and intuitive level. It's the journey that constantly fuels my mind. It's a timeless, cinematic world where stories are born...where the artist is the ultimate storyteller. I'm also concerned with the interconnections between my works and how they are presented; therefore I present many of my narrative works of art together as a thematic series.
My subject matter ranges from painting contemporary portraits and celebrities in today's visual culture to metaphorical objects as storytellers on larger than life-sized canvases. Celebrities bring a sense of decadence and iconic theatricality to my work, while working with objects as metaphors often extends meaning deep within my work on a psychological level. The final product becomes a passionate reflection of all that was revealed to me about my subjects during intense moments of personal clarity.
All I am is what I create. It's my blessing to share with the world." - Michael Bell
