Grand Stabile Rouge
Woke up thinking about Calder, and how he has inspired my life and my work in so many ways. I was 7 years old when I saw "Grand Stabile Rouge", one of his "stabiles". But his "mobiles" were the ones that always caught my attention... perfect use of equilibrium creating sculptures made out of rods and weighted objects that balance each other and rotate with air. Later I learned he made jewelry, using mostly brass, copper and simple cold connections to create elaborate wearable art! I was so inspired when I went to his exhibit with my architect and photographer friend Camila Hoefel! I didn't need any more reasons to love Calder.... but he also did sets for Martha Graham, the mother of modern dance that also happens to be one of my idols =) Oh, Calder! Such a Genius!
