Andrew Spence

Andrew Spence's work is austere-- it is also slightly whimsical, if those two things can go together. His several decades of work utilizes simple forms and shapes and color. I don't know many artists who can explore the line in such depth and variation. His exploration of symbols and lines reminds me of another austere artists, Donald Judd, who worked for decades exploring and expanding the box form.

It's like Donald Judd + Frank Stella with a dash of whimsy. Very nice.
