Calder wire bull sculpture


Alexander Calder’s wire sculptures are amazing objects of beauty. I recently saw this bull sculpture at a show on the upper east side. While looking at it I was struck at how he was able to capture so much movement into this piece. His mobiles are often described as ‘drawings in space’, but these stationary wire sculptures I feel are able to capture that same feeling of movement even without the actual movement of the mobiles. And that just seems cooler to me…just my 2 cents worth…
