Chantal Powell creates sculptural objects and installations that explore concepts of truth, illusion and constructs of reality. A PhD focusing on the social psychology of human relationships informs her practice as an artist. Her works are symbolic examinations, often personal, into untangling faith, disillusionment, make-believe and myth. With older works often playing up theatrical facade and illusionary twists, we are led to consider the self-fabrication and deception that occurs in our personal constructions of our realities and our post truth society. Recent works turn this focus towards the impact that a chronic illness has had upon her own mental constructs of reality. They make use of primtive and symbolic materials in order to explore themes of fragility, value, and transformation. They reference a mythic world of pre-modern artifacts, talismans and alchemy – a faith in ritual and self-healing. Powell’s work demonstrates a joy of making, a commitment to understanding the inherent vocabulary of her materials, and a desire to explore the riddle of our psychological world. She has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, most notably at Guildhall Art Gallery in London (alongside Paula Rego, Yinka Shonibare, Grayson Perry and Matt Collishaw), The Royal West Academy in Bristol, OCCCA in California, and at collateral events at the 53rd and 54th Venice Biennales. She was shortlisted for prestigious Mark Tanner Sculpture Award (2015) and selected by Griffin Gallery to create a collaborative work with a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust scholar (2015). She has been elected as a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors (2013) and was a finalist in the Young Masters Art Prize (2014). In 2013 she was awarded a Re:view Bursary for critical and artistic development by The Artist Information Company which led to a period of mentoring by gallerist Danielle Arnaud. Powell has also worked on a number of public commissions including two installations in Saltwell Park for NewcastleGateshead Initiative; site specific installations for both Guildhall Art Gallery London and a grade II listed church in Southampton, and an interactive public work for Museums At Night. She currently organises and runs the artist residency program at Hogchester Arts.
