Jenny Bell

b. 1960

Jenny Bell attended the National Art School and completed a Bachelor of Art at Sydney College of the Arts. Her drawings, paintings and works in relief distil decisive moments in the plain landscape she has spent almost a lifetime immersed in. The exterior traces of human and animal activity on the land, and the resultant biological processes that so captivate Bell hint at interior worlds particular to their environment. She explores this juncture with economy and restraint.

Bell has been Highly Commended in the Portia Geach portrait prize, written articles for art magazines including Art and Australia and Art Monthly, and since leaving art school in the 1980’s has regularly held exhibitions in Sydney as well as exhibiting in Canberra and Melbourne.
