“There is an idea in Finland that it is good to sit in silence as the light goes, to observe nightfall as a time of contemplation - ‘pitaa hamaraa’, ‘keeping the twilight’”. - Peter Davidson, The Idea of North
Vilhelm Hammershoi, Woman in an Interior (1900-09)
[still, a study of light]
Larry Bell, Old Cotton Fields Back Home, 1962. Collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Larry Bell, who joins me to discuss his career as one of the foremost sculptors of the post-war period. As you can see in the painting above, Bell, 72, was a key pivot between hard-edge painting, light-and-space, and minimalism, which Bell anticipated in his sculpture of the late 1950s. Bell’s work is in the collection of virtually every major museum of modern and contemporary art.
