Frank Lloyd's Blog

Larry Bell

Fans of Larry Bell will enjoy his recently updated website: Featuring clean lines and beautiful photography, the new site offers visitors a look into the artist's studio practice and current exhibitions, as well as installations and archival images.

The first exhibit to include light knots was at
Frank Lloyd Gallery in 2013. As the Bell studio states, "In terms of material weight and mass, the light knots are by far the most minimal works in Larry Bell's oeuvre. They also may be seen as products of Bell's most improvisational decision-making and technique, an accumulation of lessons in responding to his materials with spontaneity and intuition gleaned in nearly 60 years in the studio. Composed of thin sheets of polyester coated with aluminum and silicon monoxide, which Bell then twists into a knot. Each hanging form retains or changes its shape through gravity acting upon the object's own surface tension."

Craig Kauffman

Installed by Starr Figura, curator of Drawings and Prints, On Plexiglass is now on view on the 4th floor, in the David Geffen Galleries. The scholarly context and wide range of artists brilliantly shows the history and use of the material. As the MoMA demonstrates, acrylic plastic was invented in the early 1930s, and was widely used due to the properties of being lightweight, stable, transparent and malleable. Other artists from the MoMA collection include Naum Gabo, László Moholy-Nagy, Claes Oldenburg, Bridget Riley, Robert Rauschenberg, Barnett Newman, Jesus Rafael Soto and more. Kauffman's Red-Blue work was acquired in 1965.

On their new website, Sprueth Magers has posted two past exhibits for Craig Kauffman, one in their Berlin space in 2016, and another in their London branch in 2017. Sprueth Magers has presented highly researched exhibits which re-contextualize Kauffman's work. The show at the London gallery includes a video narrated by the curator, Frank Lloyd.

Museum Exhibitions

Peter Voulkos

Peter Voulkos' work is included in a major show at the
Metropolitan Museum. Shapes from Out of Nowhere: Ceramics from the Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection celebrates an extraordinary gift of 125 modern and contemporary ceramics from Robert A. Ellison Jr. As the Met states, "Shapes from Out of Nowhere presents the work of forty-nine artists whose works reject any lingering ideas of medium-based hierarchies and celebrates artistic expression." Voulkos was at the forefront of this huge change in the medium.


The Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College in Claremont, California is home to the Marer Collection of Contemporary Ceramics. The collection, which includes nearly 900 works by American, British, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese artists, is focused on West Coast ceramics and the work of those artists involved in the ceramic revolution of the 1950s. The collection is available for viewing online through the Williamson Gallery website.
