From the Catalogue:
Presenting objects floating in space is the calling card of Alexander Calder. Like his mobile sculptures, Chevrons Noir sur Rouge et Jaune, 1966 also engages the artist’s taste for the kinetic and choreography. Suspended in motion, the relation between each pebble is poetic yet simplistic with Calder using only primary colours to depict these orbs and the magnetism between them.

About Alexander Calder

American artist Alexander Calder changed the course of modern art by developing an innovative method of sculpting, bending, and twisting wire to create three-dimensional “drawings in space.” Resonating with the Futurists and Constructivists, as well as the language of early nonobjective painting, Calder’s mobiles (a term coined by Marcel Duchamp in 1931 to describe his work) consist of abstract shapes made of industrial materials––often poetic and gracefully formed and at times boldly colored––that hang in an uncanny, perfect balance. His complex assemblage Cirque Calder (1926–31), which allowed for the artist’s manipulation of its various characters presented before an audience, predated Performance Art by some 40 years. Later in his career, Calder devoted himself to making outdoor monumental sculptures in bolted sheet steel that continue to grace public plazas in cities throughout the world.
