Chantal Powell

Chantal Powell is a contemporary artist who creates seductive sculptural objects that cross the boundary between reality and imagination.

Her artistic practice has an ornate vocabulary and demonstrates a baroque influence with emphasis often on material excess and theatricality. Themes and imagery are referenced from visually rich literature that has psychological undercurrents such as that of J.G. Ballard, Joris-Karl Huysmans’ Against Nature and George Sand’s Journey Into The Crystal.

Chantal Powell lives and works in Southampton, Hampshire. A PhD focusing on the psychology of human relationships informs her work as an artist. Powell's work has been exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, most notably at The Royal West Academy in Bristol, OCCCA in California and at the 53rd and 54th Venice Biennales. She has exhibited alongside artists including Paula Rego, Grayson Perry, Yinka Shonibare, and Polly Morgan.
