Donald Judd

Donald Judd (June 3, 1928 - February 12, 1994) was an artist whose work, in its final form was about space and reality itself. Judd's early work as a painter evolved to free standing three dimensional objects, either on the floor or the wall, that used simple often repeated forms to explore space and the use of space.

Judd's mature work, after 1963, used bold colors and introduced the use of materials for their own sake. Metals, industrial plywood and color-impregnated plexiglas were used throughout his career. Other works used concrete and adobe blocks, normally used in low income homes of the South-West United States.

Judd was born in Excelsior Springs, Missouri.

Judd is often referred to as a minimalist, a term he despised.
