Untitled (Working Drawing for Three-Part Variations on Three Different Kinds of Cubes)
Sol LeWitt was a mentor to many younger artists and writers. He was so significant to Lippard’s thinking that she dedicated Six Years to him. While his own practice always led to materialized works, he defined his artistic method as Conceptual, because he would always start from an idea, often permutations of a basic form or repetition of an operation, which he called the “machine that makes the art.” These two sketches show him elaborating the multiple forms of open cubes, and some of the various configurations possible for parallel straight lines.
