Artist Carel Visser deceased
In his hometown of Le Fousseret in southern France artist Carel Visser passed away on 1 March. Visser was known for his unconventional way of working. When in the postwar period sculpture is dominated by figuration, he chooses an abstract visual language. With a wide oeuvre of sculptures, collages, drawings and woodcuts, Visser’s iron sculptures are perhaps the most characteristic of his artistic career. Welded, arranged, stacked and geometric shapes.
Visser has been included in numerous museum collections, the Rabo Art Collection has also collected a nice overview of him over the years.
