Wall Drawing #1252: Scribbles for Pier 88 2008

by Sol LeWitt

Wall Drawing #1252: Scribbles (Pier88) is composed entirely of pencil scribbles on the wall, marking the modulation from black to white and black again, resulting in two striking bands of light on the wall. This drawing is part of a series of scribbled pencil wall drawings begun in 2005. Sol LeWitt created this wall drawing specifically for the passenger ship terminal at Pier 88 and it is one of the last the artist conceived in his lifetime. While LeWitt did not cite references when making wall drawings, certainly he was thinking about the state of mind of the passengers disembarking at Pier 88. As such, he was greatly interested in creating a work that is serene, elegant, and visually striking.
