Sol LeWitt “Structures”
LeWitt came to fame in the late 1960s with his wall drawings and "structures" (a term he preferred instead of "sculptures").
The Toledo Museum of art has one of Sol’s “structures” in its collection.
His use of open, modular structures originates from the cube.
Cube-A box-shaped solid object that has six identical square faces. A cube has 6 square faces. A cube has 8 points (vertices). A cube has 12 edges. A square is in many ways like a cube, only in two dimensions rather than three.
The cube was a form that influenced the artist’s thinking from the time that he first became an artist.
At first he created closed forms that looked like wooden boxes wooden objects
In the 1960s he “decided to remove the skin altogether and reveal the structure.”
This skeletal form, the radically simplified open cube, became a basic building block of the artist’s threedimensional work
Many of his works are large scale and constructed in aluminum or steel.
