6.) If the artist changes his mind midway through the execution of the piece he compromises the results and repeats past result
7.) the artist's will is secondary to the process from idea to completion.
His willfulness may only be ego.
From Sentences on Conceptual Art, Sol LeWitt ( 1968)
The above two thesis of Sol Lewitt illustrate the process by which I proceed in my drawings and collages. through predefined and formal rules by which material and method are fixed I draw almost mechanically lines on paper. The surface is paper, mdf, honeycomb cardboard or canvas. The operation is without value judgment, made without emotion.
I perform by these strict regulations. within the work are no contexts, no interventions. At. 22.) Lewitt: "the artist can not imagine his art and can not percieve untill it is complete". Questions such as "what am I investigating, may I intervene or do I want to intervene in a predetermined process". What if I don't deviate from the rules I made, not breaking out of the pursuance? " Only two lines again and again ( horizontal-vertical) just do it, be there while doing it ( the implementation of the rules) that may just be enough, what lies behind it, what can come out of it, without interfering. Is there anything at all behind the work thet will manifest itself? Central thought during and after the making the work. One 'story' at a time. Building a fundament.
