Artists in Conversation: Larry Bell and Peter Shelton

with one comment

FBL219On May 18th, I hosted an artists’ conversation between Larry Bell and Peter Shelton at the gallery. It was one of our most well-attended events, with well over 50 people packing in to hear Larry and Peter discuss Larry’s exhibition. Larry Bell: Recent Work ran from May 4th – June 8th, and featured a series of mixed media collages as well as examples of Light Knots.

Larry and Peter’s discussion covered a lot of ground, but ultimately focused on how these new works are an extension of Larry’s life-long interest in perceptual phenomena. Larry emphasized the spontaneity and improvisational nature of the pieces on display, and how those qualities are of increasing interest to him.

If you weren’t able to come to the gallery and hear these artists in person, don’t worry! Larry’s son Oliver Bell filmed and edited two videos of the event. I’m posting one here, and they are both available on the Frank Lloyd Gallery Vimeo channel, along with other gallery-produced videos.
