Artist of the moment…Anthony Caro

 

 

this fellow is from England and was born in Surrey in 1924.He is known for making sculptures out of found materials. He found his vein of modernism in the 1960s after seeing the work of American Sculptor David Smith. At the Saint Martins School of Sculpture and Design he was an instrumental teacher, this school is in London.

Caro also taught at Bennington college from 1963 to 65.

In 1949 he married the painter Sheila Girling and they had 2 sons.

His work is unique and that most works are self supporting and sit directly on the floor.

In 2008 he did a wonderful installation in a church in France titled Chapel of Light.

The clip is about this Chapel of Light.
