Vintage Welded and Painted Steel Abstract Sculpture in the Constructivist Style

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Created in the Russian constructivist style, this polychromed vintage welded steel abstract sculpture exhibits a commanding perception of both negative and positive space. Highlighted in a deep red color, the raw steel is evident and contrasts to the smooth surface of the paint. An all-over patina of surface rust adds to the tension between the painted surface, the raw steel as well as the interplay of the positive and negative space created by the intersecting forms. Utilizing architectural shapes as sliced pieces, this sculpture presents a balance of form, line and function.
