Carl Andre is the inspiration behind Canwood Gallery’s opening and it therefore gives the gallery immense pleasure
to be exhibiting Isoclast 07.
Carl Andre an American minimalist artist is recognized for his ordered linear format and grid format sculptures.
His sculptures range from large public artworks to more intimate tile patterns arranged on the floor of an exhibition space.
Carl Andre’s Equivalent VIII better known as ‘the bricks’ caused massive public controversy during the 1970s
when purchased and put on display by the Tate. Due to the publicity it has attracted it is perhaps one of
the best known works of modern art in the Tate Collection.
“These bricks have really brought the public in. They can’t make head or tail of them.
Nothing has attracted as much attention as they have.”
Arthur Payne, Gallery Assistant, quoted in the Evening Standard
Beautiful, and contemplative or just a pile of bricks, the debate will always roll on. For Canwood Gallery it is exceptional art
that has transformed a life.
