Bree Bell

Bree is currently a student at Howard W. Blake Highschool in the fine craft magnet program. She grew up in a small town somewhere in north Georgia, but recently moved to Florida to pursue more opportunities to focus on her art. The pieces she creates are odes to her childhood in the Appalachian mountains- all the good, ugly, and the in-between.

No Choice but to Adapt

Date of Creation: March 23, 2023

List of Materials: Papier-mâché, deer antlers, acrylic paint, Nu gold wire, and found objects

Photographer's Name: Bree Bell

Model's Name: Bree Bell

Conceptual Statement: I based my project around the saying "With nowhere to go, she adapted". The antlers are meant to bring in a sense of natural, organic imagery; the necklace is to show an un-natural, added object. The crown itself is the base, where I began, but then to adapt I added things that would help me blend (the antlers, flowers, etc.). Now I have learnt to embrace my upbringing, and that is what the necklace shows. The whole piece was meant to be a letter to my younger self, to show I don't have to wipe away my childhood to move forward.
