Artwork Description

Sol LeWitt's work explores the near infinite possibilities of color and line. Color Bands is a series of eight prints in which mesmerizing curves and lines play on the optical effects of adjacent colors. LeWitt was a self-proclaimed conceptual artist who believed that his finished artworks served as concepts rather than as inherently valuable objects. For Color Bands, he composed a set of drawings and measurements that were executed by a master printmaker.
