Lot Essay

“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... Ideas are discovered by intuition.” (S. LeWitt, quoted in Sol LeWitt: a Retrospective, exh. cat., San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, 2000, p. 369).
