Lot Essay

“It is no coincidence that the person who makes R.H. Quaytman’s panels was formerly a collaborator of Donald Judd’s. The fastidious construction, the often dazzling optics, the play between transparency and opacity: Quaytman’s painting and the Minimalist object share much. Most of all, perhaps, they share a systematic logic in which every detail, from individual paintings and installations to their publication and distribution, is subject to careful control."
- P. Galvez, ARTFORUM, September 2011, vol. 50, no. 1, p. 303
