Larry Bell, one of the most noteworthy representatives of abstract art in the postwar period, whose career has spanned four decades and has given him an audience in all the major art centers of the world. His medium, "light on surface," has often utilized the technology of thin deposition of vaporized metal films. Bell's work has evolved in a number of directions beginning with constructions, glass boxes, and standing wall glass panel sculptures. Other bodies of work include Vapor Drawings, Mirage Works (collages) on paper and canvas, Furniture De Lux, Sumer , a series of calligraphic bronze sculptures cast up to 30 ft in height, and Fractions, a recent investigation (collages) totaling more than 10,000 small works on paper. Bell exhibits extensively in museums and galleries internationally and nationally, has been awarded numerous public art commissions, was the recipient of the NM Governor's Award for Excellence and Achievement in the Arts, 1990, and is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Musee d'Art Contemporain, Lyon, France, Tate, London, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Progressive Insurance Corporation, Myers Development Co., among many others. Bell recently installed two large-scale bronze sculptures in Orange County, CA and one at 30’ high in Hong Kong.
