“Failed Mediation”

March 19 – April 10 2022, 500x Gallery

“Failed Meditation” is a solo exhibition by Scott Bell at 500X Gallery. The exhibition will run from March 19-April 10 with the opening reception Saturday March 19th from 7-10pm. This exhibition features new works that comment on the landscape of our attention span, illustrating the chaotic manner of the images that infiltrate our lives. The artist is interested in the pleasure trap of seeking connectedness through the bombardment of media. As a society, we no longer spend time in the simple present; instead, we are paradoxically persuaded to look at everything but what is right in front of us. The paintings in this exhibition are visual representations of the constant search for enlightenment in the trenches of unrelenting distraction.
