When considering the works of Ruri Yi and Don Voisinecertain affinities announce themselves immediately: most prominently,the highly distilled, geometric figures which both artists use to such good effect, and, second to this, the dramatic and dominant use of black. Taken together, both of these things call to mind an entire lineage of 20th century modernism and minimalism; Malevich, Reinhardt, Frederick Hammersly, Tony Smith, Serra’s works on paper, and Ellsworth Kelly are all artists that either episodically or programmatically used simple and bold black forms because of their particular combination of force and seductiveness.
