Inspired by the dancing colours and shapes I see at night with the neurological disorder visual snow. Night is never truely dark, the veil of moving dots and shapes is made even more obvious with darkness. While very little is know about the condition one theory I quite like is that it is the brains visual interpretation of its inner working, neurons firing. The patterns, kaleidoscopic designs and fractal like images are repeated in nature at every level, from the microscopic to space. The painting could be pebbles on the ground, a satellite image or something seen through a microscope, the viewer will find their own connection to the work and interpret the image as something that has meaning to them or sparks a memory.

About Jennifer Bell's work:
The dominance of pattern in Bell’s practice is attributed to her experience of an uncommon neuro-ophthalmological condition. The artists’s visual field is filled with patterned dots characterised by movement. While it may not be a visual experience shared by many, our surroundings are full of man-made and naturally occurring patterns. Bell’s work points us towards such beauty of the ordinary.
