A key figure of American Minimalism, Donald Judd established an essential vocabulary of forms and always remained faithful to it. Far from considering his works as sculptures – calling them ‘specific objects’ – he used simple and often repeated forms with the intention of exploring space and its uses. Untitled (1984) is one such construction. Judd moves away from the illusion and representation of space characteristic of the European artistic tradition, to let the scale, materials and evolution of the line become an end in itself.

I paint as if I were walking in the street. I collect a pearl or a crust of bread; what I find around is what I offer
