Sol Lewitt — Folds and Rips 1966-1980

Out of Stock

Fine poresentation of Sol LeWitt’s torn and folded paper works. In 1966, Sol LeWitt conceived a new type of work that he described as drawings without drawing, in which he replaced the act of drawing itself by using various ways of folding paper. In 1969, he started to regularly produce what he called Folds, first as gifts to friends, then as works to be distributed by his dealers. In 1971 he added the Rips, drawings made of ripped paper. LeWitt developed this extended approach to drawing from ripping papers of various sizes and colors to working with city maps and aerial photos of Florence, Manhattan and Chicago from which he removed various areas. The book presents these works for the first time, along with a historical essay by Dieter Schwarz and full-color reproductions of the Folds and the Rips
