Creative Quotations from . . .
Alexander Calder
(1898-1976) born on
Jul 22
US sculptor. He invented the mobile, delicately balanced suspended moving sculptors, e.g, "Spiral," 1958.
The underlying sense of form in my work has been the system of the Universe, or part thereof. For that is a rather large model to work from.

If you can imagine a thing, conjure it up in space then you can make it . . . The universe is real but you can't see it. You have to imagine it. Then you can be realistic about reproducing it.
My whole theory about art is the disparity that exists between form, masses and movement.
I paint with shapes.
My fan mail is enormous. Everyone is under six.
