Press



Born in 1939 in Chicago, Larry Bell lives and works in Taos, New Mexico, and Los Angeles. A pioneer of Californian minimalism, he uses the cube as the keystone of his work. The surface of the glass cubes that brought him fame are treated using a technique called thin-film deposition of metallic particles. His works explore the notion of perception and the secret relationships between corners, space and infinity.
