The basis for nearly all Le Witt's work is generally simple and logical. The final work, however, may appear visually complex or perceptually illogical. Typically LeWitt will work out in advance a set of rules which will govern the execution of the work. These are an equivalent to the linguistic concept of syntax. His vocabulary is confined to a limited number of forms. These prints are based on a series of isometric projections of a cube which have been divided diagonally, horizontally and vertically. By joining the lines within the cubes LeWitt arrives at an almost limitless number of figures.
