About

Steel 76 is a unique small size contemporary modern abstract sculpture by Dutch artist Carl Möller. This work explores the effect of adding and deleting diagonal planes in a perfect steel cube of 20x20x20 cm. In doing so, the artist creates open cube sculptures that show a totally different image from each side you look at it. The sculpture is made from 2 mm steel and finished with an industrial matt metallic grey spray paint on the outside and a matt gloss white spray paint on the inside. The pictures shown are taken from a position perpendicular to the object, the in situ picture however shows that the sculpture can also be displayed in different ways, for instance 45 degrees rotated. Carl Moeller (1950, Netherlands) is a practicing sculptor since a number of years. Originally educated and working as an architect, he developed a passion for working with steel as a form of free expression. His work is abstract by definition and effectively is a search for the visual power of different geometric shapes. His intention is to create objects that will enter into a (silent) dialogue with its spectators. The natural inclination of steel is to return to its original state, being ore. In order to make steel from ore, a lot of energy is required. Steel therefore has a higher energy state and ore a lower energy state. Newly produced steel will corrode in order to return to its most stable state. Disintegration of steel structures to the lowest energy state is the natural process. Similar to human existence, more energy is needed to preserve what is created and keep it from decay and disintegration than the energy required for the creation itself.
