Sol LeWitt: New Work
London, 15 September – 23 October 2004
Lisson Gallery has pleasure in announcing the eleventh show at the gallery by Sol LeWitt since he first exhibited in the early days of Lisson in 1969.
The historical achievement of Sol LeWitt over his long and distinguished career has become legendary. After his first solo show in Britain at the Lisson Gallery, London in 1971, The Times Review, described the work as “a novel kind of drawing done directly onto the wall.” This was followed by his first museum show in Britain at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford in 1973, curated by Nicholas Serota.
LeWitt is perhaps best known for his geometric wall paintings of circles, squares, triangles, rectangles and the complex forms derived from them. This exhibition, specially conceived by the artist for the Lisson space, will include two of the latest wall paintings within the main ground floor gallery that will face each other across the L-shaped exhibition space. The first of these will occupy the three large walls of the gallery with a colour palette of red, yellow, blue, orange, purple and green with the second in a strict tonal palette of black, grey and white.Read more
