Anne Marie Paul
bronze on black marble base 15″h
Anne-Marie Paul’s life and work have been touched by extraordinary talent. Though essentially self-taught, her sculpture has been nurtured by the tutelage of Aimé Mæght and Joan Miro in Nice, France, where she was born in 1949, then in Paris in the ateliers of Alexander Calder, Georges Mathieu and César. At the early age of 25, Paul received France’s most prestigious national art award, “Le Prix de Rome”.
Sculpture is more than paining. It is greater to raise the dead to life than to create phantoms that seem to live. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Michael Angelo
Niki de Saint Phalle
Three dimensions are real space. That gets rid of the problem of illusionism and of literal space, space in and around marks and colours – which is riddance of one of the most salient and most objectionable relics of European art. The several limits of painting are no longer present. A work can be as powerful as it is thought to be. Actual space is intrinsically more powerful and specific than paint on a flat surface. Donald Judd, in Arts Yearbook 8 (1965)
The Flamingo– This sculpture was designed by American artist Alexander Calder. This sculpture stands 53ft. tall, and what makes this sculpture interesting is that the color (Calder Red) strikes a great contrast with the black buildings that surround it. This is located in the Federal Plaza, and what makes this sculpture interesting is that since you can walk underneath it, it gives you this great perspective. What makes this art piece different is that it is stationary, rather than movable because Calder is mostly famous for the mobiles he created.
Sculpture is an art of hollows and projections. -Auguste Rodin
Miro’s Chicago– This sculpture is directly south of the Daley Center, and it is one of my favorite pieces of sculpture. To me this piece looks like a woman with the fork like thing that sticks out of her head being a comb. This stands 39ft. tall and was created by the artist Joan Miro.
Do not ever lose sight of that first impression which moved you.
Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot c.1828
Art never expresses anything but itself. Oscar Wilde
The sensitive observer of sculpture must learn to feel the shape simply as shape, not as description or reminiscence. He must, for example, perceive an egg as a simple solid shape, quite apart from its significance as food, or from the literary idea that it will become a bird.
Henry Moore 1937
