Lot Essay

“In one of the progressions I used the Fibonacci series. In another I used the kind of inverse natural number series: one, minus a half, plus a third, a fourth, a fifth etc. No one other than a mathematician is going to know what that series really is. You don’t walk up to it and understand how it is working, but I think you do understand that there is a scheme there, and that it doesn’t look as if it is just done part by part visually. So it’s not conceived part by part, it’s done in one shot. The progressions made it possible to use an asymmetrical arrangement, yet to have some sort of order not involved in composition” (D. Judd quoted in D. Elger, Donald Judd Colorist, Bonn, 2000, p. 22).
