Valencia vaporized metals and mixed media, signed L Bell and dated '91 verso. Large vertical image of abstracted geometric iridescence.
Former Selkirk Auction purchase, Autumn Modernism 2006. 85"h. 65"w. frame 86.5h. 66.5"w.

  • There is a small white line (photo # 6) to the right and below dead-center of the artwork that looks like something scraped across the painted surface and left a white mark (NOT a scratch to the surface) - it is located below the protruding triangle the emerges from the right side of center that seems to be fairly minor and hard to see naturally. Also, as you look at our image # 3 there is another line that you do not see until you get up close to the work and it runs vertically for about 48 inches or so, but could be part of the work, and maybe not - as it is not a straight line but a running vertical line that runs down near the bottom of the painted work on the canvas - a minor issue to the visual appeal of the work.
