Imi Knoebel

One of my (and my wife’s) favorite artists. I love minimalism and he takes it to the extreme, my favorite kind. I think I fell in love with his work when I saw it on display at the DIA:Beacon.

Out of all the amazing work you can see there, Room 19 truly shocked me and really made me stop and think. I think it even took me a minute to convince myself that this was even a piece on display, beyond that, once I was convinced of its status as “for public consumption,” the color and choice of material knocked it out of the park for me. I am a fan.
