   Donald Judd was an American minimalist artist (painting and sculpture). Within his works the viewer can observe the simplicity of geometric pure forms, and industrial materials. Personally, it was interesting to see how object occupy the space and become an organic form within the space, as flower in a field. Even within the simplistic forms, his sculptural art becomes complex but stays simple. I want to bring this kind of idea into my work, to be simple but complex within occupying the space and language.

“Untitled” (Six Boxes) | 1974

“It takes a great deal of time and thought to install work carefully. This should not always be thrown away. Most art is fragile and some should be placed and never moved again. Somewhere a portion of contemporary art has to exist as an example of what the art and its context were meant to be. Somewhere, just as the platinum iridium meter guarantees the tape measure, a strict measure must exist for the art of this time and place.”  –Donald Judd [x]
