Sol LeWitt, Untitled, 1971. Ink on paper. 22 x 31 in. (55.8 x 78.7 cm.)

Mignoni Gallery is pleased to present Sol LeWitt: Lines in All Directions, a solo exhibition comprising three of the artist’s major bodies of work for which he is arguably most known. The exhibition includes Serial Project #1, 1966, Wall Drawing #42, 1970, Wall Drawing #69, 1971and works on paper dating from 1970-71. Also included are gouaches on paper, which became one of the artist’s preferred media by the 1990s.

 

LeWitt is generally associated with Minimal art, particularly in his early work, which is characterized by simplicity and lack of artist intervention. He worked in New York in the early 1960s alongside other Minimalist artists, including Dan Flavin and Robert Ryman. LeWitt’s work, however, bridges Minimal and Conceptual art, and he felt more comfortable with his association with the latter movement in that the idea of the work is central to its execution as opposed to its form.
