Sol Le Witt

Dez 22, 2012


Marian Goodman Gallery Paris currently presents a solo exhibition of Sol Le Witt.

The exhibition includes four works first conceived between 1985-1994, consisting of floor to ceiling pyramids constructed of multiple facets, set against uniform backgrounds. Each work is drawn directly on the walls in successive layers of delicate ink washes, alternating in yellow, red, blue and gray. It is no accident that the results recall Renaissance frescoes since LeWitt first developed this technique after moving from New York to Spoleto, Italy in 1980. Fascinated by the works of the painters of the Trecento and Quattrocento, LeWitt was quoted at the time he lived there as saying that he wanted “to produce something [that he] would not be ashamed to show Giotto.”
