Reel Silver

Reel Silver showcases Bella Ann Townes' photomedia practice with a series of images that unravel a story of the changing human condition. With photography as the basis for her work, she is able to explore specific moments in time with a sense of reality whilst invoking atemporal environments through a variety of techniques and media. This body of work sees Bella Ann's photographs manipulated and reconstructed by cutting, layering and rebuilding the image with stencils, dark room techniques as well as stop motion video.   By integrating film, stencilling and digital media she has pushed, played and experimented with the parameters of the photographic medium. The result offers an intimate glimpse into personal identity, transformation and environment in the form of black and white multiple exposure Holga prints, screen printed and stenciled portraits, and a video installation of her stills.   The body forms the central theme within her reconstructed images with a particular interest in beauty and destruction. This is evident through the placement of the characters, often seen within places of decay, as she aims to blur our perception of the movement toward and away from a state of perfection.   Low-fidelity equipment and cameras were frequently used to make the images in this exhibition. This aesthetic, suggested through the medium and technique itself, is used as a metaphor for the development, exposure and fragility of human life.
