In eye-catching bright yellow, minimalism meets pop art in this playful sculpture by Alexander Caldwell. The Alberta artist favours sculpting with metal, clean lines and a vivid palette. This piece—a ‘totem’ of stacked logs forged from stainless steel and coated in shiny yellow automotive or oilfield paint stands an impressive 76 inches (193 cm.) high.
“Alexander Caldwell’s sculptures are immaculate in execution and finish”
