Following decades of exploring his artistic practice on his own terms, Los Angeles legend Larry Bell is back in the spotlight. Spoiler alert: The whole last paragraph was mysteriously chopped off, so take a look at it below, read the rest that was published in Cultured.
This sudden, overdue attention on Bell’s art, however, is irrelevant to his making it. “Studio practice in a way has a weird life of its own,” he says. “Each example teaches me something about what to do next, and that’s what I call following the work. The work is the teacher, essentially, and I’m the student.”
