"Plexiglas…would open up a whole range of new possibilities. Almost more than any other material, Plexiglas lived up to Judd’s stipulation that material and color should form a single entity, for color is truly inherent in Plexiglas. It is available in an almost endless variety of factory-made colors, and can, in addition, be opaque or transparent, dull, intensely glowing or even fluorescent.”
Dietmar Elger in Exh. Cat., Sprengel Museum Hannover, Donald Judd, Colourist, 2000, p. 21
