|Complex Form 6, 1987|
With the return of sunny days the timing is just right for viewing outdoor art. The Public Art Fund has installed 27 works by the artist Sol LeWitt in City Hall Park. The work spans more than 40 years and the evolution of his "structures," as he preferred to call them. LeWitt worked in various media including drawing, photography. He was part of the Minimalist art movement of the 1960's and was considered the innovator of the Conceptual art movement. A recurring theme throughout the exhibition is geometric forms and angles based on mathematical grids. Some are identical cubes that are repeated and deconstructed. He stripped down his ideas into outlines and forms allowing us to use our imaginations and fill in the spaces. It is fitting that his structures sit in a sunny oasis of green in our city of 90 degree angles, the ultimate homage to our grid plan layout. -Edna Suarez
