Wes Bell

November 7–30


Wes Bell’s poignant and melancholy photographs depict shredded remnants of plastic bags caught in the barbed wire fences that span the roadsides along the Alberta Prairies. The imagery manifests as multilayered, emotional metaphors that contemplate mortality and capture the poetic purgatory that exists between life and death.
