The present portfolio comprises one of Donald Judd’s final printmaking projects before his death in 1994. While the artist’s previous editions were persistently spare and monochromatic, here he breaks away and uses vibrant contrasting colors. He remains true in his devotion to sharp edges and seriality but rather than leaving areas void of ink, he fills each entire sheet, and it is the colors, not their forms, that create the variation from one print to the next.
