Christopher Bell born in 1960, studied art and photography at University and has a special fascination with the vibrancy of colours and perspective. Here in his latest range he has combined these phenomena to startling effect.
He applies tints and colours to both sides of a special piece of iron free, toughend glass and then bakes them in an oven for sometimes days on end while the pigments “grow”, fuse and merge. One thing is for sure, that its impossible to enter a room where one of his works hang and not be drawn like a magnet to its extraordinary lustre and depth.
Christopher has a studio in a quiet rural part of Dorset which he shares with his two best friends, Daisy and Louie, his black labs.
