SOL LEWITT CONCRETE

This website is dedicated to exploring the work of Sol LeWitt through one of the many mediums he has utilized in his prolific career, concrete. In order to understand LeWitt’s work and his process it is possible to look at the progression of his works in one medium, in this case concrete. In his 40 plus years as and artist, he has created thousands of sculptures, wall drawings, works on paper, and paintings that are crafted with core principles in mind. His philosophy puts process above all else with a strong focus on simple repeating forms. The concrete works detailed in this website span 25 years and were conceived by LeWitt, but like much of his work, were executed by others. The concrete material, in block form for all but two of the early works, are easy for others to work with and equaly as accessible. The structures of these works installed throughout the world are varied in shape and form, but carry-on Sol LeWitt’s philosophy of valuing the theory above all else.

“In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. – Sol LeWitt, "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art", Art Forum, 1967.
