Sol LeWitt



Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) is an important contributor to the 20th century's most cerebral "isms" notably minimalism and conceptual art. 

Many of his works were created from elaborate and detailed instructions rather than his own hand or labor. His (in)famous large-scale "wall drawings" for example, destabilized and expanded the definition of authorship as they were executed by teams using instructions. Furthermore these classic "wall drawings" were often temporary - only lasting the duration of an exhibition. 

Influenced by his time as an architect, LeWitt's artistic practice was rooted in a deep appreciation of geometric forms. Utilizing ratios, patterns, and formulas, the artist would create geometric works across many mediums.

"Parallel Curves" is a fine example from the last chapter of the artist's career. Set on a saturated tomato red backdrop, this work features a series of intricate curves that converge to form a web-like pattern. The curves, executed in a soft translucent grey/violet, transform into a cool mauve when intermixed with the red surroundings. This is a fine example of LeWitt's remarkable mastery of color and form. 

"Parallel Curves" was included in the "Landfall Press 30th Anniversary Portfolio" alongside works by Claes Oldenburg and Jim Dine, among others.

Today, LeWitt's work is represented in numerous public institutions including the MoMA (New York), the Tate Modern (London), the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), and the Centre Pompidou (Paris), among others.
