ART5 GALLERY WELCOMES ARTIST CHELSEA DAVINE!
We’re excited to welcome artist Chelsea Davine to ART5 Gallery!
Chelsea is a British artist who was born in London but grew up in Lyme Regis, on the Dorset coast, an area she still finds spellbinding to this day. As an art student, Chelsea was profoundly influenced by fieldtrips to a coalmine in Wales, to stone quarries in Portland, Dorset, and particularly to the former shipyard, Swan Hunter, in North-East England. It was a formative experience and Chelsea knew she wanted to bring the “harmonious, elemental’ process in her work.
Starting with unusual bases such as metals or Italian linens, she pours or dribbles paint, layers plaster or delicate gold leaf, then scrapes, cracks or corrodes her medium to get the effect she is searching for. From this, layer by layer, she creates three-dimensional abstracts – “paint sculptures” – where textures and colours merge and change with alterations in the light.
