"Sol LeWitt on the Roof: Splotches, Whirls and Twirls"
by sabine7 / July 17, 2005


Why not spend Sunday afternoon on the rooftop of the Met in the company of Sol LeWitt’s Splotches, Whirls and Twirls? The Cantor Roof Garden is home to a vivid installation of five fiberglass structures (a term LeWitt uses instead of sculpture), merrily pointing upwards, as well as an accompanying wall painting. The structures had their conception in a group of 1999 works entitled Non-Geometric Forms, an evolution from the artist’s earlier days of concentrating on the cube. Primary and secondary colours join together like technicolour stalagmite, as one white structure and one black stand by, all in sharp contrast to the New York City skyline.


Artist: Sol LeWitt
+ metmuseum.org

Sol LeWitt on the Roof: Splotches, Whirls and Twirls is on the roof of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY until October 30.
