Vaughn Bell

Thinking Caps


Vaughn Bell's artwork takes a humorous approach in looking at the the human desire to tend to and control the land.  Thinking Caps is and installation piece incorporating elements of sound and paper sculpture.  Thinking Caps is about the ideal mountain setting, a place that allows contemplation.  The sculpture creates an environment of solitude that is unique from the surrounding environment.  I think Bell's work is funny and she helps us see the ridiculousness in thinking that nature is an entity separate from ourselves that we have the power to dictate.
