‘Most art is fragile and some should be placed and never moved away.’ Donald Judd

To contemplate Donald Judd’s monumental
concrete boxes, meticulously placed in
Marfa’s scrubby terrain, is to experience
the elemental engagement of form with sky,
sun and earth. Despite their pristine
geometry, the pieces have an unmistakable
rawness; like the surrounding high desert
landscape, they speak powerfully of scale.
The charge of reciprocity crackles in the air.
