Natalie Bell

Natalie is attracted to bold formal design, and the decorative qualities of the everyday objects that surround her. She likes to create a rich visual environment on the canvas, unrestricted by what she’s looking at, enjoying the juxtaposition of unrelated elements of colour.

Having studied sculpture at Norwich School of Art and Design, Natalie feels the sculptural qualities of form and paint. Using Acrylics and Oils, she applies paint to areas in thick layers, scraping back through them to create bold marks and reveal hidden colour.

Currently Natalie is exploring narrative, by combining objects that evoke memories of a past existence, with fruit and flowers that have a fleeting existence. She searches the internet and for objects that speak to her, and is also inspired by the belongings of loved ones.
