(Photo credit: Hatch by George Bedell)
George Bedell’s Fables series constructs inventive narratives using common household materials. Bedell’s image Hatch, from the Fables series, is featured in the “New Visions” exhibition. In his artist statement, Bedell discusses his still-lives as “raw and fast.”
Many of the images are retellings of current events, items culled from the news, seen through the lens of mythology or art history. A few of the images are about the creative process itself, hopefully looking at the artist with a sense of irony or self-deprecating humor.
