More information about this artwork

Sol LeWitt was a radical of his time, regarded as the founder of Minimalism and Conceptual Art’s transcendental aesthetics. Constantly challenging and transforming the process of making art, he alternated mathematically, linguistically-based and randomized methodologies to explore the impact of the artist's subjectivity in his creation. He believed in the power of ideas, above the singular hand of the artist and its outcome, claiming that ‘the idea becomes a machine that makes the art’. LeWitt’s instruction-based wall drawings and later ‘structures’ conform the hallmark of his revolutionary practice.

This vibrant gouache on paper is an extraordinary example of Sol LeWitt's distinctive vision. His abstract looking creations were the result of a series of permutations executed within a set of self-imposed restrictions. The piece features a series of free-flowing lineal designs in exuberant primary colors. Sol LeWitt passed away in 2007, leaving behind one of the most impressive seminal investigations on the role of ideas and concepts in art.
