Trans-form presents a selection of major works spanning the last three decades of award-winning artist Trevor Bell’s career, including the most recent paintings and favoured works from the artist’s personal archive.
Along with other significant artists who were working in St Ives in the 1950s, Trevor Bell (1930-2017), helped establish British art on the international stage. He also spent 20 years living and working in America and showed work on both sides of the Atlantic.
Trans-form is the last exhibition supervised by Trevor Bell who passed away in November 2017. Recently, Bell embarked upon a dialogue between mark making and contemporary dance in collaboration with the choreographer, the late Rodger Belman. Trans-form celebrates Bell’s engagement with how the physical energies of a painting can transcend the object’s form and includes a specially commissioned audio/physical visual response, featuring a musical score by Jamie Mills and dance devised and performed by Sarah Fairhall and Lois Taylor.
Trans-form is conceived and curated by Joseph Clarke.
This is a partnership exhibition delivered by Peninsula Arts and The Box, Plymouth.
