Stanley Bell Silent Art Auction
48th Annual Carbondale Mountain Fair
Sunday, July 29, 2018
Carbondale Artist, Stanley Bell hosted a Silent Art Auction at his studio benefiting the Hope Center. In addition to Stanley’s pieces various local artists donated art pieces as well.
Stanley Bell’s work draws from a range of sources, including pop culture, graffiti, outsider art, illustration, and design. Drawing upon his urban upbringing and subsequent move to the mountains, Bell’s work intermixes hallucinatory fragments of the urban landscape with the surrounding atmosphere and environment. More recently, these paintings have taken the form of detailed, colorful, microscopic visions of the energy amidst clouds and buildings, attempting to describe energy physically, graphically, and symbolically.
