Sculptures by Jeff Bell

Rocker (2008) steel, wood, paint. 16 X 18.5 X 11.25 inches

For the Noise (2008) steel, wood, paint. 19 X 39 X 36 inches

Artist Jeff Bell recently exhibited work at FLOOD Gallery and unfortunately his show went under the radar in Asheville. "The Sled and the Blocks" - the title of the exhibition - was a collection of sculptures the artist produced with commonplace items reconfigured to produce familiar yet unidentifiable forms.

Bell lives in Durham, NC and has exhibited work through North Carolina including The Greensboro Art Museum.

My goal for each sculpture is to bring together elements from different backgrounds to create a new object that lives in the precarious area between the known and unknown. They allude to a variety of sources and concepts but never too literally. The finished work strives to be both more poetic and allusive.
