About Chess:-

Chess is a mixed media artist based in Salisbury, Wiltshire.Chess Artist At The Acorn Gallery, Pocklington

A lot of her inspiration comes from the stories that can be created just by placing certain newspaper and magazine clippings on or beside the faces of iconic figures, and seeing how by choosing different articles, she can momentarily change the cultural lens through which the person is seen, or at least the narrative through which a viewer might look at the painting. 

Her work firmly roots the iconic figures that she paints in their context, incorporating original newspaper clippings from throughout their lives and legacies.

The textual element of her work brings together the love of reading and writing that she explored through her English degree and Creative Writing Masters.
