The Studio Part 5
Another artist that I admire is Trevor Bell, a British abstract painter and one of only a few living artists to have had a full Tate retrospective. His early career was spent in Cornwall, from here he moved to Florida were he spent 25 years teaching at the Florida State University. In 1996 he moved back to Cornwall, and soon became a regular feature at the Tate St Ives exhibition programme, with a full retrospective in 2004. His large paintings are very sculptural,( developing his own method of making stretchers of unusual shapes ) and incredibly vibrant in colour and form. His studio looks amazing very light and airy but at the same time dramatic, in fact very similar to his paintings.
