Bell's work questions the natural in daily life by placing the copied, altered, and designed flora of the built landscape in direct relationship to living nature. Through brightly hued material juxtapositions, her installation The Shape of the Afternoon challenges the distinction between natural and artificial, and explores the human desire to control the surroundings. PLATFORM is a series of solo exhibitions by early- and mid-career artists from both the New England and national arts communities. These shows focus on work that engages with deCordova's unique spaces, both indoors and outdoors, and social, geographical, and physical location. The PLATFORM series is intended as a support for creativity and expression of new ideas, and as a catalyst for dialogue about contemporary art.
