Characteristics:

a. Rectangular and curvilinear forms arranged usually in dynamic, organic relationships, but with an over-all geometrical control to the composition.

b. Space usually treated three-dimesionally and often in vibrant, pulsating manner, reflecting the inward and outward tensions and thrusts of the forms within the space.

Origins: Cubism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism.

Calder: Feathers. 1931. Wood, steel rod, lead, 39 1/2” high. Buchholz Gallery.
