SOL LEWITT wall drawings
from afar the squares that fill the gallery walls at the DIA: Beacon look like a series of painted gray scales, but after a closer look one will notice each square is divided by hand drawn pencil lines, horizontally and vertically into four equal parts, in four directions thus creating the different shades.
“LeWitt’s work is no more in thrall to mathematical calibration than to system per se: on those occasions when he does exhaustively pursue seriality and permutation, as in the tow variants of Drawings Series, the result is imbued with a degree of excess such that the limpid cogency and coherence is almost undermined by a gossamerlike luminostiy.” read more about the exhibit here and to see an installation time lapse click here.
