Installation at BT&C Gallery, Buffalo, NY
April 9 – May 29, 2015
Some things showcases Roberley Bell's latest body of work continuing her decades long investigation of the idea of the "natural" in our contemporary environment through sculptural organic abstraction. Bell is best known for sculptural and installation work that creates a dialogue between our interior and exterior worlds, as well as nature and its synthetic likeness.
Also included is a series of small sculptures which Bell has titled some things and from which the exhibition takes its name. These small works are meditations for Bell—they allow the artist to work spontaneously and intuitively, serving as mental preparation for her large-scale work. An extension of the themes explored in her other work, but on a different scale, both visually and psychically, they are delicately subtle musings on the boundary between nature and artifice. This is the first time these works have been exhibited en masse.
