From the 1960s onwards, Judd’s works were made in factories using common industrial materials. The colours in this work were chosen from an industrial colour chart, and enamel-baked on to aluminium sheets, which were then bolted into a precise arrangement determined by Judd. The way that each colour related to the others was of paramount importance, and he was determined to avoid the most obvious harmonies or contrasts. ‘I didn’t want them to combine’ he later wrote, ‘I wanted a multiplicity all at once’.
