Sol LeWitt

One of my very favorite artists has died of cancer at the age of 78. I trust Tyler Green to honor the man. Green also links to the NYT obit, among other options, that are pretty helpful.

If I weren't living temporarily in someone else's house, I would be making a small penciled graph-drawing on a wall in his honor. (What is it that is so mesmerizing about those penciled walls?) Rest in peace you kind, generous, humorous and brilliant man. Thank you for giving me such art-happiness.

"It was said that Mr. LeWitt didn’t like vacations. His pleasure was being in his studio. He explained that he had worked out his life as he wanted it to be, so why take a vacation from it?" NYT Obituary, April 9, 2007
