Collection
Meander I
Carl Sydow Meander I

As the title suggests, Meander I is a playful meandering line that appears to be moving in space and time. The hoses that loop back and forth through a clear perspex frame evoke a sense of circularity and continuity. A precise relationship between drawing and sculpture is achieved through Carl Sydow’s structural investigation of interlacing shapes. Sydow’s unconventional approach to sculptural materials and the depiction of form and line in space pre-empted the future direction of much contemporary sculpture in New Zealand. Carl Sydow attended the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts from 1959 –1961 and completed an Honours course in Sculpture at University of Auckland in 1963. He also gained a Diploma in Fine Arts at Auckland Teachers’ College in 1962. Between 1964 and 1966 Sydow visited England on a QEII Arts Council Grant and worked in the studios of the Royal College of Art.
