Sandback (1943–2003), who grew up in New York state and spent time in New Hampshire, displays pure devotion to the Minimalist faith of focused attention on the subtle relationships among simple, often industrial objects, the viewer, and the space they share. So if you're tuned in, he seems to outline a force field with a 1968 trapezoid outlined in gray yarn stretching between the gallery wall and floor. If you're in the right Zen state of mind, you could dream up much from these simple yarn lines, but it's all so arid and feels so much like mathematical equations that I tend to resist his spell.
