Description

Artist, critic, and writer Donald Judd gained attention in the 1960s for his industrially produced works, which he famously called “specific objects.” Considered by many to be the apogee of postmodern beauty, these pieces reflect Judd’s singular aesthetic and essential understanding of color, order, and form. These sleek, often box like constructions were made of decidedly non-artistic industrial materials, and depersonalized through their commercial fabrication and lack of titles. The cool rationality of Judd’s work is manifest in this sculpture. Six rectangular aluminum boxes are mounted vertically, with equal space between them, allowing the viewer to note subtle deviations in design.
