Deborah Bell is one of South Africa’s most celebrated contemporary artists. She works across a range of media, from clay to bronze to canvas, paper and dry point etching. Her earlier more political work has given way to a broader, deeper investigation into the space between mortality and immortality, matter, spirit and the mythic. In recent years she has developed an immediately recognisable visual language: images simple and symbolic, grounded, silent and still.
Taking place this summer at Spirit Studios in Suffolk, we are delighted to host the largest European survey of sculpture and painting by acclaimed South African artist, Deborah Bell. Held in partnership with the Everard Read Gallery, the exhibition spans the last 25 years of Bell’s career and includes her monumental figure of Artemis, last seen at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2012 as well as five figures from the artist’s Unearthed series from 2000.
