ROSALIND KRAUSS GRIDS PDF

Yet it is safe to say that no form within the whole of modern aesthetic production has sustained itself so relentlessly while at the same time being so impervious to change. It is not just the sheer number of careers that have been devoted to the exploration of the grid that is impressive, but the fact that never could exploration have chosen less fertile ground. As the experience of Mondrian amply demonstrates, development is precisely what the grid resists. But no one seems to have been deterred by that example, and modernist practice continues to generate ever more instances of grids.

This notion of the grid as the work of art itself marks the 20th century break from the Enlightenment period of the 18th century as the way Agnes Martin or Reinhardt for example adopted it in their work. The idea of the grid as both scientific and spiritual makes me question whether art and spirit are separate. Let me first define spirit not as a religious summoning in its traditional sense of the word but as an unexplainable energy inherently involved in the process of creating that is in itself sacred and religious in its own way.

My earlier work has always been driven by a need to create, and at times I would create spontaneously, working on a composition or with the set of colors that I did because of a whim or a need. Everything I create now has become a set of criteria, always questioning the reason behind certain choices that I make.

I miss the energy of creating art on an impulse and the happy accidents and little surprises that happen along with it. During these impulsive moments, however, I also miss thinking, of being able to filter and translate what I see in front of me into something different or new and meanwhile understanding the process of this translation.

I think that in both cases where there is an obvious imbalance between the spiritual and the intellectual, the work is not at its greatest potential.

I find myself constantly teeter-tottering between the two: one often outweighs the other. I know, however, that I am getting closer towards a compromise as my work becomes informed with the theory and work of artists that I admire, but takes a direction of techniques, mediums, and processes that I find spiritually drawn to because for me there needs to be a degree of spirituality in order to create whether that spirituality is born in an idea or on a technical level.

Response to Rosalind Krauss’s Grids

Via Just Quist werd ik gewezen op het boekwerk van Rosalind Krauss. Nu ging het iets specifieker over het hoofdstuk Grids uit dat boek. Dus Just stuurde me dat toe en vervolgens heb ik het gelezen. Een erg interessant artikel en daarom nu hier. Het gaat over de betekenis en herkomst van grids, een raster. In die zin is het inzicht van romantici als, ook formeel gezien, voorgangers van Mondriaan en Agnes Martin voor mij totaal nieuw. In the early part of this century there began to appear, first in France and then in Russia and in Holland, a structure that has remained emblematic of the modernist ambition within the visual arts ever since.

Yet it is safe to say that no form within the whole of modern aesthetic production has sustained itself so relentlessly while at the same time being so impervious to change. It is not just the sheer number of careers that have been devoted to the exploration of the grid that is impressive, but the fact that never could exploration have chosen less fertile ground. As the experience of Mondrian amply demonstrates, development is precisely what the grid resists. But no one seems to have been deterred by that example, and modernist practice continues to generate ever more instances of grids. The importance of this movement to the grid is that it explored form as determined by function, and placed this in a political context. Arguing that simplicity of form was accessible and democratic, its members advocated minimalism, using only rectilinear forms, and eradicating surface decoration other than as a byproduct of a limited color palette: the primaries plus black and white.

Grids – Rosalind Krauss

The grid format has been an important component of avant-garde visual art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century. Early appearances of the grid format include work by Piet Mondrian , Kazimir Malevich and other artists belonging to the De Stijl and Constructivist movements. The grid format also features prominently in minimalist and conceptual art of the 60's and 70's. The art theorist Rosalind Krauss writes,. In that great chain of reactions by which modernism was born out of the efforts of the nineteenth century, one final shift resulted in breaking the chain.
