Following the success of Mackenzie Bell‘s first Brighton Open House last year, you are once more invited to visit his unique exhibition, displayed within a beautiful Victorian conservatory and an enchanting walled garden, in the heart of the Clifton/Montpelier area. This will be Mackenzie’s final year exhibiting at this venue.
A student of Fine Art at Central St.Martins, London (B.A. Honours), Exeter College of Art and the University of Brighton (M. A. Fine Art), Mackenzie has taught art across the globe, from Los Angeles to Sydney, and was Head of Art at St. Paul’s College, Sussex. He is now established as one of the West Country’s most prominent painters, with several solo and group shows there.
“Mackenzie’s confidence in handling a diverse range of subjects is remarkable – from the lavender fields of Provence to his most recent work, drawing on inspiration gained visiting the Atlantic rainforests and gardens of Brazil in January. His attention to detail is extraordinary, as he explores the textural and linear qualities of his subject matter with audacity, dramatic light and exuberant colour. These paintings are truly inspirational, assaulting our senses with a splendid celebration of nature. ” JRLS.
