Larry Bell
Untitled, 1985
30 x 25 in.

Throughout his career Larry Bell (b. 1939 Chicago) has made investigations into the properties of light on surface. By experimenting with the nature of surface and its relationship to space, Bell has devised a methodology characterised by spontaneity, intuition and improvisation. As seen in this work, Bell often explores the passing of light through his sculptures by adding thin films to clear glass panels to challenge notions of mass, volume and gravity.

Bell lives and works between Los Angeles, CA and Taos, New Mexico. He has exhibited widely, including the exhibitions ‘Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, Doug Wheeler’, Tate Britain, London (1970); ‘11 Los Angeles Artists’, Hayward Gallery, London (1971) and ‘Phenomenal’, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (2011). Solo exhibitions include the Pasadena Art Museum, California (1972); Fort Worth Art Museum, Dallas, Texas (1975 and 1977); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1986); Denver Art Museum, Colorado (1995) Carré d’Art Musée d’art Contemporain de Nîmes, France (2011) and The Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas (2014).
