Artists teach critics what to think. Critics repeat what the artists teach them.
Minimal art went nowhere.
Just as the development of earth art and installation art stemmed from the idea of taking art out of the galleries, the basis of my involvement with public art is a continuation of wall drawings.
Artists of many diverse types began using simple forms to their own ends.
In my case, I used the elements of these simple forms - square, cube, line and color - to produce logical systems. Most of these systems were finite; that is, they were complete using all possible variations. This kept them simple.
