Sol LeWitt
The idea or concept is the most important aspect of my work.
LeWitt quotes
The ideas need not be complex. Most ideas that are successful are ludicrously simple. Successful ideas generally have the appearance of simplicity because they seem inevitable.
Artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach.

LeWitt Sol quotes
The artistís aim is not to instruct the viewer, but to give information, whether the viewer understands the information is incidental to the artist.
LeWitt Sol
The artistís will is secondary to the process he initiates from idea to completion.. ..His wilfulness may only be ego.. ..The process is mechanical and should not be tampered with. It should run its course.
