|Lilian A. Bell||
Title: Between the filigree & the solid
Medium: Laser print
Size: 15" x 19 3/4"
In her current work, Bell uses metaphors of natural elements like water and stone to examine how recorded reality can be rearranged, intensified, and manipulated through the use of digitized images that allude to the flowing dissolution and reconnecting fields of particles that comprise that which we call reality.
Since 1990 She has developed photo-based works using scanners, e-mail, fax machines, and color laser printers to create artists' books and fax art installations that use the accidental aesthetics of tele-collaboration to explore the relationship between yesterday's and today's technology.
In addition to the more than 175 exhibitions in the Americas, Europe, and Asia and two Visual Art Fellowships, her work is included in over 100 publications, the most recent of which are books and articles including her fax art installations published in England, Costa Rica, Hungary, and Spain, and World Wide Web / Internet interviews and features.
