Inka Bell (b. 1981) is a Helsinki-based printmaker who uses minimal groupings of color and pattern to evoke specific states of being. Sourcing her palette and forms from observation, she creates visual narratives that are vaguely familiar, yet not immediately legible to the viewer. For instance, her pair of screenprints Untitled AM (2018) and Untitled PM (2018) depict overlapping vertical lines in yellow and peach, which represent the warm colors of the July sky in Finland, yet evoke summer skies around the world. Paper plays a central role in her work, which she uses for printing or shaping into new forms, and by restraining her visual language, her screenprints give order to our physical and abstract experiences.
