Mirror Matter II by Deborah Bell

Leading South African artist, Deborah Bell, is a frequent collaborator with David Krut Workshop (DKW) where she has produced a number of prints over the years. Bell’s work is fundamentally informed by a search for the ‘self’ for which she draws on spiritual imagery found in ancient sources as well as memories linked to her spiritual beliefs and to how she self-defines as an artist in Africa.

Mirror Matter II explores themes of death, the underworld and the after-life. Like Mirror Matter I, it is based on sketches of shadows cast by damaged wooden crucifixes in Barcelona but also taps into Greek mythology, depicting Orpheus attempting to retrieve his wife, Eurydice, from the underworld.
