Description

Sol LeWitt first expressed his commitment to the theme of "seriality" at the time his work was evolving from its roots in Minimalism to a pioneering Conceptualism. In response to works by peers including Donald Judd and especially Dan Flavin, LeWitt pared his vocabulary to simple geometric forms. Focusing on the cube and square, he fabricated neutral, three-dimensional structures in wood and metal painted pristine white which followed systematic progressions or series based on mathematical sequences. For example, 1 2 3 (1967-2003) manifests all possible variations on three different kinds of cubes. 24C is part of a series LeWitt began in 1962 and continues to produce in various permutations.
