> DESCRIPTION

Foxy Production presents mbs_fp_090712, Michael Bell-Smith's third solo exhibition at the gallery. Using digital tools, Bell-Smith's four new single-channel videos employ the language of commercial design to engage with the histories of experimental film, video art, and painting. His work opens up a dialogue about mark-making, gesture, and poetics; one that both critiques and embraces prevailing communication technologies and their relationship to visual culture.

Bell-Smith mixes stock footage, sound effects, software templates, and digital drawing. With meticulous editing and composition, he produces a richly-layered, non-linear brew. His works induce both disquiet and pleasure: their tempo and the familiarity of their elements intensify both the pressure and relief delivered by everyday, software-derived moving images.
