Born 1961 in Whitehorse, Yukon, Caldwell lives and works as an artist full time in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Alexander Caldwell’s sculptures are immaculate in execution and finish. Caldwell embraces curves and right angles, round volumes, and flat planes, where minimalism meets pop art. Squares, spheres, hemispheres and cylinders are the building blocks of his art. Each sculpture is painted a single bright colour or coated with a meticulous metal finish. Caldwell works mostly with found materials, although he will cast elements he wants to repeat. He employs colour to remove the shape as far as possible from its origins as a functional object. The colour that transforms the industrial origins of his materials has become so important to the minimal shapes that it’s “as if the metal has become an armature for the paint." Caldwell’s artworks are held in private and public collections in Canada, USA, Greece, and Korea.
