Edward Chell

Edward Chell’s practice is rooted in painting but he works across media, making combinations of objects and text and exploring the site-specific. He is interested in conflicting storylines within the spatial environment, aiming to capture the collisions between the values and meanings we bring to our experiences of place, with a particular focus on borders and peripheral places that present a form of ‘Terrain Vague’ (meaning abandoned areas; obsolete, unproductive spaces and buildings).

Chell’s recent solo exhibition ‘Bloom’ at the Horniman Museum and Gardens, London, (2015) explored the sometimes uneasy relationships between taste, material and environmental exploitation and display, using the museum's plant collections framed by the visual tropes of blue and white porcelain.

Edward Chell is an artist based in London and Reader in Fine Art at UCA Canterbury. He has a BA in Fine Art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art.

He is represented by Galerie Bugdahn und Kaimer, Düsseldorf, Germany.
