stainless steel sculpture "chapel" 1983

 

 

This sculpture was purchased by The McCrory Collection in New York, NY in 1984.

 

They had a largre Constructivist Collections. The Firm retired in the 2000's.

 

The collection was donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

 

Stainless Steel is one of my favorite materials for Outdoor Modern Sculpture.

 

The down side to it is more heavy and expensive to build and fabricate due to is hard quality.

 

The same sheet of Stainless Steel is $3000 and in regular steel $426.

 

The more Nickel added to Steel the better the grade. I find a Stand Grade #304 to last nicely over a 30 year period.

 

This Monumental Table Top Sculpture is a reversal shapes in 2 scales revealing one image opened up inside the other.

 

Abstract/Minimal Abstract Sculpture can fall into the term of Modern Sculpture as it still has it's roots in the Cube.

 

Modernism and Minimalism both have their roots in in the same thinking "Less is More"..

 

Modernism really began around 1928 with The Bauhaus Movement.
