Born in Montreal, Jessica Bell holds a BA Art History (with Distinction) from the University of Calgary (Calgary, AB), and is presently completing the final requirements toward her MFA Visual Art at the University of Ottawa (Ottawa, ON). Nominated for her collage-based considerations of painting, Jessica Bell was a finalist for the 2013 RBC Canadian Painting Competition held at the National Gallery of Canada and has exhibited recently in venues which include the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (Milwaukee, WI), Art Mûr, (Montreal, PQ), and Ottawa's Karsh-Masson Gallery. Jessica Bell's democratic approach to media has facilitated the publication of her mixed media works in two recent survey texts by Index Book (Barcelona, ES) and Chronicle Books (San Francisco, CA), and granted her a 2014 research internship under the supervision of Andrea Kunard (Associate Curator Photographs, National Gallery of Canada), conducting inquiries into the practice of material theatre in contemporary Canadian photography. Jessica Bell is currently based in Ottawa.
