ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sarah Bell positions her practice at the nexus of photography, printmaking and painting; seeking to uplift the medium of photography through her engagement with slow and considered technical processes of care and experimentation most likened to the traditional mediums of painting and printmaking.
She studied at the Victorian College of the Arts under the guidance of renowned Australian photographer, Bill Henson, completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1985 with a printmaking major. She has since exhibited locally at Linden Gallery (now Linden New Art), Brunswick Street Gallery and Artistcare Gallery in Melbourne. She was awarded the Sheila Kirk Award for Printmaking and the Geelong Grammar School Foundation Board Award for studies in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Sarah Bell is a finalist in the 2017 Lens Mist Awards.
