"Alexander Calder Quotes"


+ The sense of motion in painting and sculpture has long been considered as one of the primary elements of the composition.

+ From the beginning of my abstract work, even when it might not have seemed so, I felt there was no better model for me to choose than the Universe

+ When an artist explains what he is doing he usually has to do one of two things: either scrap what he has explained, or make his subsequent work fit in with the explanation.

+ A knowledge of and sympathy with the qualities of the materials used are essential to proper treatment.

+ Each element can move, shift or sway back & forth in a changing relation to each of the other elements in the universe. Thus, they reveal not only isolated moments, but a physical law or variation among the elements of life. Not extractions, but abstractions. Abstractions which resemble no living things except by their manner of reacting.

+ With a mechanical drive you can control the thing like the choreography in a ballet and superimpose various movements.. a great number, even, by means of cams and other mechanical devices.

+ The underlying sense of form in my work has been the system of the Universe, or part thereof.
