About

LEWITT, Sol. Complex Forms. Comprised of four large double-folded colour screenprints, 355 x 1420 mm (14 x 56 inches). Square folio, 360 x 360 mm, bound in thick paper over board, lettered spine and both covers with original colour screenprints by LeWitt. Preserved in black cloth folding box. Zurich: Annemarie Verna & New York: Brooke Alexander, 1990. Edition limited to 15 copies signed and numbered by LeWitt. These four original coloured screenprints printed by Watanabe Studio in New York echo the amazing wall drawings that the artist conceived in 1987-88. Complex Forms represents LeWitt's experiments with fracturing the cube into component parts. The application of four colours juxtaposed in variations of hue and saturation further expands the visual experimentation. A key factor to emphasize is that Lewitt's wall drawings were executed directly on the wall for a limited duration, usually a month or two. When a given exhibition was over, many of his creations were not sold and carried away like a painting or sculpture. They were simply painted over and permanently lost except for the original drawings and/or colour gouaches. The essence of LeWitt's work is the original idea as formulated in the artist's mind. Because it emphasizes conceiving rather than implementing, this kind of art has often been referred to as conceptual art" (Andrea Miller-Keller, Sol LeWitt: Twenty-Five Years of Wall Paintings 1968-1993, in the exhibition catalogue of Addison Gallery, University of Washington Press, 1993, p. 37). Condition is as new.
