Clement Meadmore moved to New York in 1963. Living in the American cradle of Modernism and Abstract Expressionism imbued Meadmore's work from this time onwards with a rigour and eloquence that was reinforced by his fascination with geometry. He was able to translate geometrical principles with great expressiveness and flexibility thanks to the use of cor-ten steel, which is reminiscent in shape of a steel beam, and has a natural, rusted patina. In Cotter, one arm of a rectangular arc launches upwards, an exhilarating movement that is reinforced by the monumentality of the medium and the scale of the work.
