Sol LeWitt: Splotch #15

This creation is titled "Splotch #15" by Sol LeWitt, part of an installation on the Cantor Roof Garden in Central Park, New York. It was fabricated in 2005, and is twelve feet tall. I especially like how the vivid colors of LeWitt's piece juxtapose the greyer, more monochromatic images of the park and city. At the same time, it is similar in form to its surroundings: the colors of Splotch #15 fit well together and seem to grow off one another naturally, just like the plant life of the Park or the city's skyline. The sharp, distinct edges of each peak and the continuity of the piece as a whole are linked to this week's continuous, slow contour drawings.
