Carol Corey Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of the work of Dozier Bell at DFN Projects, 16 East 79th Street, Suite G-2, New York, NY.


The drawings of Dozier Bell are at once deep evocations of natural environments culled from memory and experience past, and reflections of a life of philosophical inquiry and keen observation. Marvels of virtuosity and poignant imagery, these tiny drawings and watercolors  (mostly about the size of a  postcard) somehow convey expansive space and limitless horizons. Much of the subject matter is inspired by her own environment on the coast of Maine. As Bell has remarked "Infinitely complex, at once undefended and harsh, welcoming and seemingly impenetrable, this forested, watery place continually shows me the inescapable vulnerability and unknowable forces that inform it, and by extension, us."


Dozier Bell was born in Lewiston, Maine. She graduated magna cum laude from Smith College in 1981 and received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1986. 


In addition to a Fulbright Fellowship as artist-in-residence at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany, Bell has been awarded grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundations, residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Peterborough, NH, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, ME, Monhegan Island in 2022 , and in 2014, a Purchase Prize award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York.
