Brutalist Sculpture Attributed to American Artist Jack Cartlidge

5,500.00

A Brutalist sculpture attributed to American artist Jack Cartlidge (1924 - 2006). Dating from the late 1950s or 1960s, the sculpture is a combination of drift wood, iron and sandstone. Cartlidge was a well-know artist and educator who resided for most of his life in Sarasota, Florida where many of his monumental public sculptures can be found. In this instance, welded rebar pieces puncture through a wedge of sandstone and are set into a thick driftwood base (the stone and wood are materials that would have been available long the Florida coast). The abstract shape of the welded bars and associated welded steel pieces, form an abstract and organically-Brutalist composition. This sculpture is unsigned and was acquired from a collection in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The artist attribution is from that source.
