Ingrid Bell


The development of my work holds affinities with the ever increasing crossover between Art and Science.

I am particularly interested in sensory experience from birth through to death and the body as a register for emotional states and how these often hidden states are portrayed. It seems natural then to take autobiographical narrative as a resource fundamental to understanding the experience of others.

Whilst my interests are drawn from the personal and shared experience, there is a clear connection for me in my choice of media which underpin these explorations. I find that all modes of printmaking express similar properties of layering of experience. By taking an image and transferring it onto another medium something new is created. I am also inspired by, and drawn to explore, environments that facilitate immersive experiences, be it constructed site specific spaces or the moving image.
