We LOVE the work of Bob Zoell. We have been friends since 1987 when we purchased our first Bob Zoell painting at Ace Gallery. He is well known for his “Spot” paintings and for his language based pieces. He has had gallery and museum exhibitions in Japan, France and throughout the United States. His work is in the permanent collection of LACMA and OCMA. He received the Pollack/Krasner Grant and the Adolph Gottlib Grant. In 2001- 2002 he was a visiting faculty member at UCLA. He is a regular contributor to New Yorker Magazine and has seven covers to his credit. He currently focuses on Public Art commissions, including a really fantastic one at the San Francisco Airport. In the photo above, we are standing in front of “Hoots”. “Hoots” is a big guy, over 13 feet high! It was a real pleasure to live with this painting. Our house felt So Happy and so did we!
Last weekend we went with Bob to see a fantastic house in Malibu, where the owner commissioned Bob to design an installation for the outside of his home. As you can see, the results are beyond fantastic.
