He began as a painter in the 1960s, but soon made work with mirrors to produce three-dimensional constructions. It was through these initial investigations that he discovered an industrial vacuum plating process called ‘thin film deposition’ and in the late-1960s, Bell acquired a large, walk-in vacuum chamber for his studio.

Chuck Close is renowned for his highly inventive investigations into how we process information. Celebrated internationally, Close uses the absolute minimum amount of information necessary to render likenesses. In his new works, Close continued his involvement with the grid as an organizing device, creating full-color paintings out of only cyan, magenta, and yellow pigments, and layering colors in singular brushstrokes. Close is reinventing techniques he first developed in the 1970s and 1980s; however, this time the color has no relationship to reality. This will be Close’s sixteenth exhibition with Pace.

Agnes Martin is perhaps most recognised for her evocative paintings marked out in subtle pencil lines and pale colour washes. Although restrained, her style was underpinned by her deep conviction in the emotive and expressive power of art. Martin believed that spiritual inspiration and not intellect created great work. ‘Without awareness of beauty, innocence and happiness’ Martin wrote ‘one cannot make works of art’.

The unique, unmistakable, innovative work of Jeff Koons has made him one of the most prominent figures of the art of our time.
