Larry Bell

Known for his involvement in the Light and Space Movement in California during the 1960s, Larry Bell is synonymous with light art. Bell works with a variety of media including glass, mirrors and polyester coated with aluminum to create works that reflect light in ways that challenge the perspective of the viewer. Some of his work was recently on view at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum on Pepperdine University’s campus in a show titled “Larry Bell: Pacific Red.” “Pacific Red,” a title of one of the works, is a new piece created of red laminated glass. Six “V” shaped glass panels were created, forming a chevron pattern. Visitors had the opportunity to walk in-between each panel, experiencing how the light changed through each consecutive “V.” Other works in the exhibition included a hanging series titled “Light Knots.” Consisting of abstract shapes that were polyester coated with aluminum and silicon, the “Light Knots” twirled in the air, their reflections creating flashes of spots across the walls and floors.

Andy Warhol Life & Legends

FullSihzeRender 22As Andy Warhol so famously stated, “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” Well the fame of the exhibition Andy Warhol Life & Legends at Pepperdine University’s Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art will certainly last longer than 15 minutes. Pop artist Andy Warhol’s Marlyn Monroe, his iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans and his playful Flower prints are all on display, as well as other works such as his Endangered Species Series and his Myths Series. The prints appear to pop off the brightly colored blue, yellow and red walls of the museum. Be sure to check out this exhibition before it closes on April 3!
