Solomon “Sol” LeWitt was an American artist linked to various movements, including Conceptual art and Minimalism. He helped establish Conceptualism and Minimalism as dominant movements of the postwar era. His art, deceptively simple geometric sculptures and drawings and ecstatically colored and jazzy wall paintings established him as a lodestar of modern American art.
LeWitt made over 1,200 of these works in his career.
“A blind man can make art if what is in his mind can be passed to another mind in some tangible form,”
“Conceptual art is not necessarily logical. The ideas need not be complex. Most ideas that are successful are ludicrously simple. Successful ideas generally have the appearance of simplicity because they seem inevitable.”
