'A pioneering force in post-war American art, Sol LeWitt’s geometric explorations of space, image and meaning was foundational in the development of both the conceptual and minimalist schools of artistic practice. Perhaps most famous for his “wall drawings,” the artist also explored a range of paper and sculptural techniques over the course of his career.

The motion of cutting, tearing, and folding, in LeWitt’s work, serves as an operational technique, a dynamic process of putting thought into practice through a single, rapid act. Maps, newspapers, books and colored fabrics are manipulated through simple processes, yielding new patterns and impressions on the work’s form, and illustrating the impact of the conceptual spark as it creates the final art object.'
