Carel Visser (1928-2015)

Sculptor, Graphic artist, Draftsman

Carel VISSER (Papendrecht 1928 - Le Fousseret 2015)

Carel Visser studied architecture at the TU Delft from 1948-1949. He then trained at the Royal Academy in The Hague from 1949 to 1951. Carel Visser taught at the Academy in The Hague from '58 to '62. Later from 1966 to 1998, Visser was a teacher at the Ateliers '63 in Haarlem.

Carel Visser is seen as one of the most important Dutch constructivists and he had a major influence and decisive role on sculpture after the Second World War. Visser's first images are expressionistic in nature, followed by a period where he introduced abstraction, such as the work Parende Vogels, from 1953. In addition to the abstract and mathematical constructions of Carel Visser's sculpture, he also makes graphic work where this repetition also underlies this. In the 1980s Visser starts to use other materials, such as feathers, shells, wool, sand, rope, wood, etc. The geometric shapes fade into the background and they become assemblages of found objects.
