Carl Andre is an innovative American artist who became highly influential on the art of the 1960s and 70s, when he was at the forefront of the Minimalist movement in the United States. In the 1950s, when Carl Andre was introduced to the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, he began to create geometric abstract sculptures made from wood andPerspex. He moved away from tradition of creating vertical sculptures in the 1960s when he started to make use of industrial materials in his art.
 
« I mean, art for art's sake is ridiculous. Art is for the sake of one's needs.»
Carl Andre
Carl Andre began to reduce sculpture to its most basic form by placing blocks of material directly on the floor, to form mathematical patterns, grids and linear arrangements on a horizontal plane. In creating these forms Carl Andre only makes use of standard materials that are commercially available, such as industrial bricks, wood, lead, steel, copper, magnesium and aluminum.
 
« My art springs from my desire to have things in the world which would otherwise never be there. »
Carl Andre

None of these materials are altered by Carl Andre, so the components of his work will always retain their original character. He has also experimented with bent pipes and scattered blocks and has created visual poems by arranging single words and phrases on paper, more for Read More
