“ Conceptual artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach…illogical judgments lead to knew experience.” Sol LeWitt. 1969 Lucy Lippard uses this quote in her book, Six Years: The Dematerialism of the Art Object, 1997. The author dedicates this book, “to Sol”. Sol LeWitt wrote these words first on top of a list of artistic doctrines, in Sentences on Conceptual Art, 1968. A Post-Minimal performance by conceptual artist, John Baldessari, 1972, shows the artist singing in various tunes the prophetic sentences of Sol LeWitt. A code of artistic law and ethics, these sentences were sung symbolically as resonances of a cantor in prayer, or the declarations of a national anthem. The passages of Sol LeWitt’s Sentences on Conceptual Art and Paragraphs on Conceptual Art, 1967, are rooted in a time when Conceptual art was laying its structural foundations. LeWitt’s words become conceptual commandments and served to create a new identity for an evolving generation of artists. “The words of one artist to another may induce an idea chain, if they share the same concept.” Sol LeWitt, 19692
