Lohse the painter

The attitudes implicit in Lohse's work, including strong and still radical ideas about society, are very interesting, both as to what is older and what newer. The squares and rectangles comprise schemes that repeat or vary with colors that correspondingly repeat or vary. This way of working which now is common to lots of us, didn't exist before Lohse and some others. It's not the way that Mondrian, Malevich, or Van Doesburg worked. In Lohse's work there is the end of the European compositional tradition, a good end, and also there is the beginning of much that is still beginning to develop. (Donald Judd, 1988)
