Chloé Bell - Shaping the Future

Chloé Rosetta Bell is as an artist as researcher. Material-focused and primarily working in clay, her practice examines the livelihoods that are dependent on a specific landscape. This is driven by her relationship to the land surrounding her home on the Isle of Wight. Chloé studies the materials and narratives connected to the site to inform her collections. By sourcing and transforming these materials, her objects become a tangible celebration of the landscape, placing a subtle but essential emphasis on its sustainability. They act as a physical and sensory record that preserves the landscape and the livelihoods that depend upon it.
