Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective
gelatin silver print
18 ½ x 12 in.
Brick Wall is one of set of sixteen prints that vary slightly in exposure. The work surveys the repetition of form and texture to create a more complex whole, and exemplifies the utility of the camera to document processes and series, themes central to conceptual art.
Sol Lewitt is associated with Minimalism and Conceptual art. Redefining art production by exploring ideas rather than conventional aesthetics, he distilled art to its essentials. Using the cube as a “grammatical device,” LeWitt’s work is characterized by serialization, repetition, and progression, exemplified by his iconic open-grid structures. Studying systems of line and color, his prolific output of wall drawings solidifies his engagement with two-dimensional practices spanning painting, drawing, photography, and printmaking.

Sol Lewitt: Wall Drawings allo Studio G7 by This work is dedicated to the tracking of a singular work by the esteemed Minimalist. It commences with 'the plan,' so spare, that it looks as though it might have arrived at the gallery by fax, and continues through to a schematic drawing on the wall, then figures on stepladders drawing intently, their faces clear but their pencils blurred.
