Featured Artist: Ange Bell!

Kurt Cobain by Ange Bell 4×4″ Oil

Ange is an Irish artist living in Brighton (England). I absolutely love everything about her work. It was such fun to go through her paintings. What an eye she’s got!

I enjoy the reality in this painting but I also LOVE the abstract parts. It takes this painting to a new level! Ange’s work is so incredible. I ran across her on Instagram. Take a peek via the links below, you won’t believe your eyes – Quite talented! So many wonderful paintings. The texture and colors are fabulous.

BIO

I am an Irish artist, currently living and working in Worthing. Having achieved a Masters in Fine Art at the Norwich School of Art and Design I has been working primarily in oil paint.

My current body of work consists of small scale oils, exploring the themes of origins and belonging. The work is developed from the source material of found photographs. The selection process, when choosing images to use as a starting point, is based on composition, character and nostalgic recognition. In my work I look not to dictate a specific meaning but rather to prompt either some form of recognition or inspire curiosity, and for the viewer to determine their individual narrative.

When painting I create a detailed study in oil, then through a process of working back into the surface and exploring mark making techniques, I distort, eliminate and manipulate the image to create a visual balance. These personal depictions of people’s lives have been retrieved and revived in the form of intimate oils.

My work has been selected for numerous exhibitions including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2017, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Society of Portrait Painters, Royal Ulster Academy, and I was short listed for the Artists and Illustrators Artist of the Year in both 2015 and 2016. I have been awarded the Dry Red Press Award, LARA Portrait Award and Third Prize at the Jacksons Open Art Prize.
