Label Text:
Excerpt from wall label, for the exhibition “The Unexpected Encounters of Looking Again,” November 28 - March 15, 2007:
LeWitt is primarily concerned with the idea of a work. He uses an elementary vocabulary of forms based on the straight line, the square and the grid. The work in this exhibition exemplifies LeWitt’s commitment to the formal properties of line and color as expressive of the idea. These forms create a richness and depth that simultaneously delineate and blur line and color. In this work, LeWitt’s rigid commitment to the grid rises off of the paper to create a textured, three dimensional quality in this two dimensional work. - Rebecca Karp (M.A. '08)
