In the final exhibition that he worked on before he sadly passed away, see a selection of 11 beautiful and monumental paintings from the 1990’s and 2000’s by award-winning artist Trevor Bell (1930-2017).

Along with other significant artists who were working in St Ives in the 1950's, he helped establish British art on the international stage. He also spent 20 years living and working in America and showed work on both sides of the Atlantic.

In this exhibition Bell’s paintings have provided the impetus for a sound score composed by Jamie Mills. This and the elemental energy of Bell’s work will be used as the inspiration for a new contemporary dance work co-choreographed and performed by Sarah Fairhall and Lois Taylor.

‘Trans-Form’ is conceived and curated by Joseph Clarke.

This is a partnership exhibition delivered by Peninsula Arts and The Box, Plymouth.

Today's events

Trans-Form at Peninsula Arts

Trans-Form explores the work of British modernist artist, Trevor Bell, which across three decades of his career penetrated and captured the physical and the natural, in a profoundly simplistic way. 

Bell's own mantra to never look backwards fits neatly into this season's theme of 'transformations' and viewing his work is arguably a trans-formative experience in itself.
