BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:Recent works on paper by Larry Bell will be presented at Frank Lloyd Gallery from February 8 through March 8. The dramatic collage works d isplay an expansive spatial sensibility. Bell’s illusionistic space is comp lemented by a dense array of color\, achieved by his use of vaporized metal lic particles on the surface of the collaged elements. All works are mixed media on paper\, the next step in the artist’s continuing and inventive pro cess.

Larry Bell\, best known for his investigations of the complex ities of highly refined surface treatments of glass\, has an extensive hist ory with collage\, as well. The recent works on paper\, made by a process o f laminating layers of film\, acetate and paper\, incorporate the artist’s phenomenal sense of space and illusion. The works are also infused with ric h color relationships\, and saturated with metallic iridescence. The artist has used large sheets of handmade paper from Japan.

Bell is one of the most prominent and influential artists to have come out of the Los Ange les art scene of the 1960s\, first showing at the Huysman Gallery\, and the n at Ferus. He became associated with the most important movements at the t ime\, such as Light and Space art and what was described as “Finish Fetish” (a term coined by the late critic John Coplans). Bell has continued to inv estigate the complexities of highly refined surface treatments of glass\, a s well as large-scale sculptural installations.

Larry Bell was born in Chicago in 1939\, and currently resides in Taos\, New Mexico. The artist now maintains studios in Taos\, New Mexico and Venice\, California. Having grown up in the San Fernando Valley\, Bell attended Chouinard Art School i n Los Angeles from 1957 through 1959\, where he was a student of Robert Irw in.
