  • About the work

    Gala Bell (b. 1989) is a London based multidisciplinary artist exploring processes in diverse forms, sometimes occurring through traditional media, painting or sculpture, other times we’re not sure what it is. Inspired by the kaleidoscope of modern manufacturing and synthetic materials that yield in excess, her work is the aftermath of a reaction to substance and situation, engaging with ideas of value, taste, hierarchy and absurd labour. Materials and actions become metonymic, swapping roles between building methods or kitchen techniques, in performances that are more life than art. In the form of deep-fried canvases or cast tower blocks of sugar, a silicone swim suit and a public pool, the works echo the euphoria of our synthetic environment that shapes the comedy and calamity of reality.
