ARTIST BIO


 a r a h    b e l l  /  b i o  / instagram / sarah-bell-artist.com

My painting is often framed by feelings of omnipotence in natural forces, weather changes and poetic landscapes. The work implies a nostalgia of a memory, a ‘reverie’ that elevates us beyond a landscape, sensing hope in the fragility of the luminous, physical and momentary.

I build the surface in gradual layers, sensing into a ‘slow painting’ process using a limited palette. Tapping into the kinaesthetic and sensual act of painting, I hope to provoke the viewer to dream and imagine, or be transported via the senses.

Sarah Bell lives and works from Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Victorian College of the Arts and a Postgraduate Diploma of Education from Monash University. Bell has held four solo shows and participated in numerous group exhibitions. Bell was recently a finalist in the 2021 and 2022 Omnia Art Prize.
