Sculpture

Sculpture as a means of expression

An art that radiates in all its splendor is also an art that has the freedom to exist in all its forms. This is why Arte Arta dedicates a special place to sculptors wishing to show the world what they are made of.

Here are the different types of sculptural art that you can find on our platform.

Assemblage

In sculpture, assemblage acts as an altered form of collage .

Objects of various origins, sometimes seemingly banal objects, are brought together to create a new whole with added value. Ideal for (re)inventing the world around us.

In order to achieve their goals, sculptors who practice assemblage may also be led to recycle objects that populate their daily lives. In this way, one person’s trash can become another person’s creative driving force.

A beautiful way to represent one’s own reality through art!

Molding

Unlike modeling, molding requires the prior intervention of a mold or template.

The artist’s hand then retouches and shapes the work to give it its final shine.

While the first sculptors had to rely on materials such as plaster and bronze , they now increasingly experiment with the materials at their disposal.

Among these new materials, we find:

  • Elastomer
  • Alginate
  • Plasticine

Modeling

Modeling represents sculpture’s most primitive side.

This technique invites us to return to the very essence of sculpture. It pushes the creators to use their hands to develop an astonishing form or something grandiose.

The great strength of modeling lies in the very organic, even fragile, quality of its contours.

In order to be able to successfully model a sculpture, the artist will generally use so-called “plastic” materials, which can be easily deconstructed and deformed.

Normally the materials used in modeling are:

  • Plaster
  • Clay
  • Earth
  • Wax
