Larry Bell, Cube 46


The square glass cube is composed of six sheets of amber coated glass each measuring 20 3/16”. Bell cubes and work are associated with Light and Space, a group of mostly West Coast artists whose work is primarily concerned with perceptual experience stemming from the viewer's interaction with their work. The cube sits on a clear pedestal and works both as mirrors and windows, sometimes simultaneously.
