Bella Vernon explores the potential of reclaimed objects, embedding them with imagery inspired by the landscapes around her, the London canals, cityscapes and architecture that form the fabric of everyday life. Salvaged mirrors, windows, and glass are restored from forgotten fragments into…Show more autonomous sculptural pieces that, in their partial transparency, traverse the boundaries between drawing and architecture. By adding and removing elements behind her mirrored surfaces, Vernon insists that we navigate both shadows and reflections, creating an image that is seemingly never quite static. Pre-existing imperfections upon the glass, in calling our attention to the outermost and innermost surfaces of the pieces, only make this viewing process a more unique one.
‘It’s about finding something and making it more.’

"Bella creates incredibly delicate multi-layered images by breathing new life into old reclaimed objects. Her works are quite literally ‘smoke and mirrors’ – incredibly fragile yet physically present they allow for a new level of interaction with art, both from the outside as a spectator and from the inside as your reflection becomes a part of the work."
Nat Rubinstein - Rise Art Curator
