The Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased announce an exhibition o f Carl Andre’s large-scale sculpture\, Redoubt\, on view at 534 West 21st Street from October 27 through December 15\, 2012.

\n

Consisting of four parallel rows of twenty-five western red cedar timbers\, the sculp ture was created and originally exhibited for Andre’s one-person show at th e Joseloff Gallery at the Hartford Art School in 1977.

\n

Andre starte d his career as a sculptor working with wood. In 1958-1959\, he was carving wood timbers using a chisel or saw to create abstract pieces with geometri c\, often symmetrical patterns. These early works recalled both the vertica lity and symmetry of Brancusi’s sculptures and the rigorous logic of the pa intings of Frank Stella\, whose studio Andre was sharing at the time. In 19 60\, Andre started his Elements series\, using identical timbers of equal size in various configurations. This series marks the moment when And re definitively abandoned the manipulation of materials. He progressively m oved on to materials such as granite\, limestone\, steel\, lead and copper.

\n

Andre’s first one-person show was held in 1965 at the Tibor de Nag y Gallery\, New York\, and the following year his work was included in Kyna ston McShine’s and Lucy Lippard’s seminal exhibition “Primary Structures” a t the Jewish Museum. He was\, with Donald Judd\, Dan Flavin and Robert Morr is\, one of the leading artists of the 1960s and often associated with Mini malism. In the 1970s\, the artist created large installations\, such as 144 Blocks and Stones (1973) for the Portland Center for the Visual Art s\, Oregon\, and outdoor works such as Stone Field Sculpture (1977) in downtown Hartford\, Conn.

\n

Andre lives in New York. His work has been the subject of several exhibitions\, most notably at the Solomon R. Gu ggenheim Museum\, New York\, in 1970\; the Laguna Gloria Art Museum\, Austi n\, Texas\, in 1978\; the Whitechapel Art Gallery\, London\, in 1978\; the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum\, Eindhoven\, in 1987\; the Haus Lange und Haus Es ters\, Krefeld\; the Kunstmuseum\, Wolfsburg\, in 1996\; and the Musée Cant ini\, Marseilles\, in 1997.
