American conceptual artist Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawing #1136 goes on display at Turner Contemporary.
LeWitt's Wall Drawing #1136 is one of a number of vibrant artworks he made in the last years of his life in a radical departure from his usual pencil and ink.
Utilising every primary and secondary colour plus grey, the artist created curved and vertical bands by applying brightly hued acrylic paint directly onto the walls.
Like other conceptual pieces by LeWitt, Wall Drawing #1136 is concerned with ideas of geometry, repetition and mathematical precision and exists as a set of instructions written by the artist and accompanied by an illustrated diagram.
Designed to be physically executed by others – only the very first wall drawing was produced by LeWitt himself – the works can be endlessly repeated in different locations at different times, generally only existing for the period of the exhibition.
