Trevor Bell 'Trans-Form' (Painting / Sound / Movement) Opens At Peninsula Arts
'Trans-Form', the late Trevor Bell's major public exhibition, opened on Monday 16th April at Peninsula Arts, Plymouth and continues until 26th May, 2018.
The elemental energy of Bell’s unique paintings provided the impetus for a new contemporary dance work co-choreographed and performed by Sarah Fairhall and Lois Taylor which was performed at the opening in the House Theatre. The performance was accompanied by a transcendent sound score composed by multi-instrumentalist Jamie Mills in response to works from the exhibition. There will be an additional performance on May 12th - further details can be found here: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/whats-on/performance-transform-sound-dance
The core of the exhibition is eleven important, monumental paintings made from the early 1990’s up to a selection of his final key works. Trans-Form is the final exhibition supervised by Trevor Bell before he sadly passed away in November 2017.
‘Trans-Form’ was conceived and curated by Joseph Clarke. This major exhibition event is delivered in partnership by Peninsula Arts and The Box, Plymouth.
