Sol Lewitt - Incomplete Open Cubes, 122 All Together Now
Last night at the Portland Art Museum's* Artist Talk, T J Norris spoke about the museum's one Incomplete Open Cube. During the course of the evening, we all came to realize that this solitary cube exists not just on its own but as part of a series of cubes. How many ways can an open cube be seen? Imagine Lewitt, creating in his mind and then on paper and then in aluminum with paint, these cubes. Cubes that now live by themselves, alone, holding court with works by Judd, Stella, and Agnes Martin. Alone they seem quite serene, almost aloof; together they're an army of soldiers. Soldiers I think of as going forward into the world to allow us to see and think differently.
