Carl Andre

“He is one of the most important innovators of this medium…who has redefined sculpture in its elementary features: material, mass, space, volume, gravity. From object to space Andre was one of the first artists who rid himself of the notion of sculpture as an object.

He no longer created things but arrangements in space – extension itself became the subject of his work. As he put it: “sculpture as place” instead of “sculpture as form.” — Art Guide

“There are two sides to Andre: the fiercely mathematical and its playful opposite, which is open to chance. When these two aspects are combined in the same piece, the result is most magical…” — Carol Diehl
