Fred Sandback was a sculptor who worked in a combination of Minimalist and Conceptual practices. He is best known for his sculpture installations, which employed the simple device of groupings of single strands of colored yarn suspended in a room. The yarn could be placed in a variety of arrangements, such as ceiling to floor, wall to floor, or wall to wall. The visual effect was to divide the space of an empty room into structural components. His prints and drawings can be seen as thoughts on the placement of lines in space and in relation to each other.
