Bell Fine Art Winchester, Hampshire
Back then the potency of life had hit my young heart all at once. Art, love, her, music, energy, spirit all expressed, but never together until the potency of now engaged the whole. Now is the longest second of them all.
Sometimes I catch the now amidst my second chance on canvas, in wood and amongst some words, at other times it’s unheard. Unseen and intangible, like our own echo come back to me.
Stephen Kirin, October 2017
Stephen & Lorna Kirin met at art college in the East End of London in 1986. They’ve recently married & now live in Suffolk together, working on both collaborative and individual projects. Stephen is a wood carver, painter and writer and Lorna is a landscape and seascape artist. This website primarily explores their artistic journey together and showcases their individual work.
‘We find the collaborative process a highly liberating one; together emphasising each other’s marks and forms without preciousness. Sometimes we work in tandem, others alternately, but always aim to be as fluid, expansive and as creative as possible.’
