Born on this day, Larry Bell’s work reflects a lifelong investigation into the physical properties of light, the materials it hits, and the spaces in which to create work. Equally tangible is his passion for playing with those properties with reverence and a spontaneity that belies or even denies the impressively technical nature of his practice.
On the occasion of his exhibition 'Time Machines’ on view at ICA Miami (@icamiami), follow the link in our Stories to read an interview with the artist, conducted by Cliff Lauson – an excerpt from Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ and Rizzoli New York's new release ‘Larry Bell’, the definitive survey of Bell’s career.
We are pleased to highlight glass and plexiglass sculptures by the renowned Californian artist in our presentation at Art Basel Miami Beach (@artbasel). Visit us at Booth F18 this week in Miami.
