Sandra Bell was born in 1954. She was educated in Newry, Dundalk and at Glengara Park, Co. Dublin. She is a self-taught sculptor using the “Lost Wax Method” for bronze casting.
Sandra finds great pleasure in the moulding and developing of a remarkable variety of simple linear patterns and flowing shapes. These figurative images are executed with high technical skill and craftsmanship, superbly finished with rich and varied patinations and polished surfaces. They invite active participation.
Sinuous, sensuous, elegant, graceful, tactile, feminine – these descriptive terms all apply to her work. There are many different influences in Sandra’s sculpture – Celtic, Classical, African and yet all her pieces have a uniqueness that is her own style. Her work is based on the human form, abstracting it to eliminate detail so that only the essential essence of the figure remains. Sandra portrays not the flesh, but the spirit and grace of humanity in bronze.
