Carl Andre was one of the key figures of minimalism. He was widely recognized for his grid-based floor sculptures, outdoor public works and concrete poetry. Throughout his work, he seeked to eliminate anything decorative or extraneous. As a sculptor, he neither carved nor modelled but simply focused on sorting and placing. His work came to redefine the very nature of sculpture for many younger artists.
