Vintage Sheldon Rose Alpha Typographic Cube Sculpture Mixed Media

About the Item

This interesting alpha cube abstract sculpture by Sheldon Rose is a mixed media comprised of polychrome metal and paint. It features a medley of faux letterpress symbols, numbers and letters. Each side is different and feasts the eyes. It is a cast metal form with gold paint simulating a brass look. We had it cleaned and re-painted in worn places. It is called the alpha sculpt and is not signed that we can see. Some were signed and others were not. It is from 1968 and is mid century modern. Sheldon Rose attended the Cooper Union in the 1960's and is best known for these iconic sculptures that all vary and are different. The letters, numbers and symbols are raised.

  • Awesome Mixed-Media Birdcage Sculpture
    By Fay Sciarra
    Located in Hopewell, NJ
    A beautiful and thoughtful found object sculpture titled Cage of Fear made from a vintage birdcage collaged with gingham, leopard fabric and cigar box wrappings. Inside the cage is a 3 dimensional arrangement of mixed-media objects including childrens' blocks that spell F E A R, the hand of a clock, a disturbing plastic doll that hangs from a pulley, and deer horns.

An antique shamrock paper clip at the top suggests luck, a Murano glass piece of candy and vintage brass cherub...
