For over five decades (1950s–1990s), Alexander Rutsch was a prolific sculptor and painter whose works has ranged from his welded and painted abstractions of the early fifties in Paris to the atmospheric luminosity of his "dreamscapes" in the eighties. His work has been described as "vibrating showers of lines, bold geometries, wounded anatomically rambling scrap-wood skeletons, enigmatic totem figures, and congregations of fetishized, domesticated, and recycled rubbish heaps that conspire to a fantasy of Expressionism, Cubism, Dada, Fauvism, Cobra, and Primitivism."
