Intoxication can also be traced in the work of Berlin-based artist Dirk Bell. Bell renders his sepia-toned drawings and paintings at speed, as if to grasp a train of fleeting associations.
Selected images and biographical information
Dirk Bell made a series of drawings and watercolours in which ephemeral figures and imagery appear. They refer to his experience of the world and memories of other imagery, with subjects that are often extraneous within gothic and romantic landscapes or hidden within mirror images.
Dirk Bellâ€™s drawings and photograms are strange, terrifying and mesmerising. Deeply romantic, and apparently without irony, his images are soporific and dreamlike, often reminiscent of Blakeâ€™s own following of Christian theology and Gothic art.
