"Sea Silks represents Bell’s poetic response to the shoreline of Arran where she has lived for a significant period of her life. The beauty of the Scottish coastline, the purity of light and the constantly changing environment of the shoreline crafted by the ebb and flow of the tide has continuously inspired the artistThis body of work represents a specific response to the rhythms of rippled sand, the movement of the water and the natural treasures it yields along the shoreline. The forms of the silk pods are inspired by the dried and curled seaweed washed up by the sea along the waters edge. Their colour and surface qualities reflect the movement of light on wet sand and glistening water." Dr Cathy Treadaway, Reader in Creative Practice,
