Considering Art Podcast – Deborah Bell, South African painter and sculptor

In our latest podcast episode, South African artist Deborah Bell talks about her early paintings about female objectification and entrapment, her discovery of the art of ancient civilisations, how her work became more spiritual and how her process is like a “dance between will and surrender”.
