  • SOME ASPECTS OF COLOR IN GENERAL AND RED AND BLACK IN PARTICULAR

    MATERIAL, SPACE, AND COLOR are the main aspects of visual art. Everyone knows that there is material that can be picked up and sold, but no one sees space and color. Two of the main aspects of art are invisible; the basic nature of art is invisible. The integrity of visual art is not seen. The unseen nature and integrity of art, the development of its aspects, the irreducibility of thought, can be replaced by falsifications, and by verbiage about the material, itself in reality unseen. The discussion of science is scientific; the discussion of art is superstitious. There is no history.

    I MET DON JUDD in 1963 when I opened the Pace Gallery at 9 W. 57th Street. It was next door to the Green Gallery, where Don first showed his work. In his interdependent roles as artist and critic he was extraordinarily generous. His work extended my perception of the definition of sculpture, and as a critic and friend, he encouraged me to show artists as varied as Bob Irwin and Lucas Samaras. His voice remains in my ear.
