About Anomaly

A circle of glossy stainless-steel balls creates ‘Anomaly,’ a compelling contemporary indoor sculpture. This is Alexander Caldwell. The Canadian artist has garnered an international reputation for his superbly crafted and often playful work—this is the indoor version of a large-scale sculpture that graces the sidewalk in downtown Calgary. The minimalist form is accented by a shiny dark paint; the spheres act as mirrors reflecting and distorting the images that surround them.

“The grand wreath of gleaming steel spheres that seem to bubble one from another in a carefully balanced circle — suggesting small molecular systems, cloud formations or planetary activity — is one of Calgary artist Alex Caldwell’s most impressive projects to date.” (Avenue Calgary Magazine March 2021)
