About the Edition

These prints, made from ink and collaged drawings, are a little clumsy and so seem to refer to that first ‘learning to read’ process of childhood. They were, though, drawn in frustration and as a distraction when I was writing a dissertation and struggling to understand texts and ideas. 


About the Artist

Bella Kerr’s work is concerned with space, words and the power of objects.  Drawing has provided continuity in a practice that has spanned installation, small-scale making, film, and set design, shown in a range of contexts from screenings in major London galleries, to museums, and regional galleries. Recent work has been expressed in the form of large-scale installation, digital prints and participatory and curatorial work.


Bella Kerr is based in Cardiff
