Tate. “'Untitled', Donald Judd, 1990.” Tate, January 1, 1990.

In an essay written by Judd in 1993, the artist stated: Material, space, and colour 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 colour. Two of the main aspects of art are invisible; the basic nature of art is invisible. (Judd in Serota 2004, p.145.)


"I like the space, simplicity, color, symmetry, height, scale, imagining cell like structures, pou, mana, whakapapa, striving, dominance, strength as a whole yet as individual. Questioning what are the contents, what would I fill the boxes with that would hold something, someone, identity is seen where?"
