Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to present simultaneous exhibitions of three important wall drawings by Sol LeWitt, with new photographs by Liz Deschenes. Deschenes’s recent work, loosely inspired by LeWitt, will appear with the wall drawings in the gallery’s Geary Street space.
Sol LeWittWall Drawing #786
Gallery II will be installed with Wall Drawing #669, an irregular twelve-pointed star drawn with India ink and filled in solid, first executed in 1991.
Sol LeWittWall Drawing #340A
Wall Drawing #340A, first exhibited at the Addison Gallery of American Art in 1993, will be installed in Gallery III. The wall will be divided horizontally and vertically into six equal squares, each containing a geometric figure comprised of vertical, parallel lines.

Her photograms are a direct record of atmospheric conditions during the process of their production: light, humidity, and the outside temperature, among other factors, determine the surface of the final works.
