Melanie Bellis

Bellis’ work is inspired by urban scenes and landscapes, from large scale construction sites to the neglected, deserted and derelict.  Her cityscapes feature large buildings.

“I’m drawn by their presence and scale and the way they dominate their environment.”

Working from observation and drawing on site, Bellis’ work has distinct stages - the drawn response to the subject in front of her, and the way it’s transformed through the etching process. Bellis first exhibited at Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair in 2017.
