Phoebe Bell - A Trace In Time, 2019 (detail)

Phoebe Bell

December 10, 2020

Phoebe Bell is a British contemporary artist who captures the visual embodiment of the experience of expressing yourself. Her work, showing the emotion, the freedom, the feeling, the moment, plays with the idea of taking something seemingly intangible and making it visual. Her connection with movement and dance deeply influences her works. She finds dancing to be such a “bold form of human expression as the person takes their body as a brush to paint something in the space, pouring themself into every detail of movement to create something.” Bell has danced and painted for years, and these activities have begun to evolve, becoming one as she creates.
