Description

Deborah Bell’s Alchemy was launched to coincide with Deborah Bell’s second solo exhibition at David Krut Projects, Collaborations II, which opened in 2010.

The catalogue tracks the evolution of Bell’s art over the last ten years of collaboration with David Krut Workshop (DKW). The text was taken from a series of conversations between Bell and David Krut.

Bell’s first meeting with Krut in 2000 led her to work on prints with UK Master Printer Jack Shirreff at 107 Workshop, UK. Shirreff introduced Bell to a way of printing colour which allowed her to make larger and bolder works. In 2008, she was introduced to New York Master Printer, Phil Sanders, who devised a method of etching, using three or four plates that would emulate the depth of her paintings and bring out colour in her prints.

Bell’s work is fundamentally informed by a personal search for the “self”. She often draws on spiritual imagery from a wide range of sources. The connection to ancient sources and memories is linked to her spiritual beliefs and how she defines herself as an artist in Africa.
