Just as Carl Andre’s sculptures are ‘cuts’ of elemental materials, his writings are condensed expressions, ‘cuts’ of language that emphasize the part rather than the whole. Andre, a central figure in minimalism and one of the most influential sculptors of our time, does not produce the usual critical essay. He has said that he is ‘not a writer of prose’, and the texts included in ‘Cuts’ appear in a wide variety of forms that are pithy and poetic rather than prosaic. Some texts are statements, many of them fifty words or less, written for catalog entries and press releases. Others are Socratic dialogues, interwoven statements, or in the form of questionnaires and interviews. Still others are letters – public and private, lengthy missives and postcards. Some are epigrams and maxims and some are planar poems, words and letters arranged and rearranged into different patterns. They are organized alphabetically by subject, and they include Andre’s reflections on Michelangelo and Duchamp, on Stein and Marx, and such contemporaries as Eva Hesse, Robert Smithson, Robert Morris, and Damien Hirst.
