Metal Sculpture in the Style of Alexander Calder
These very graceful metal scultpures in red and black evoke the grandios works of Alexander Calder. No matter from which perspective you look at them, their shapes and curves are very impressive. A symbol of lightness, elegance and movement!
The two sculptures are made of thin, light metall, painted in red and black with some small abrasions due to their age. One object consists of two different parts that belong together. This method gives the piece something floating. The other one is fixed by three small clamps. All two have something playful about them. Like two birds interacting with each other.
Alexander Calder (born July 22, 1898, Pennsylvania, U.S. – died November 11, 1976, NY) was an American Artist best known for his innovation of the mobile suspended sheet metal and wire assemblies that are activated in space by air currents. Visually fascinating and emotionally engaging, those sculptures – along with his monumental outdoor bolted sheet metal stabiles, which only imply movement – make Calder one of the most-recognizable and beloved modern artists.
