Carl Andre – Greatest economy, Greatest ends

Carl Andre Copper Galaxy

‘Minimal’ means to me only the greatest economy in attaining the greatest ends.”(1)

Carl Andre
Quoted in Minimalism- Art of Circumstance, Cross River Press Press, 1988, p.14

“In a 1996 interview, the sculptor Carl Andre, wrote this in a passage titled ‘The Body of Sculpture’: ‘Perhaps I am the bones of the body of sculpture, and perhaps Richard Serra is the muscle, but Eva Hesse is the brain and nervous system, extending far into the future’.”(2)
