As we all know Art comes in many forms, one of the hardest and most beautiful has to be Sculpting. The other day I was thinking of editing in terms of photography and even audio on my pc, and while thinking of how hard it seems sometimes how much harder it should be to create a sculpture from a rock. That must be editing in its highest form, and that’s how this Youtube playlist of sculptures was born. The hardest working editors ever.
How would you apply any of these skills and techniques towards photography or your form of art? Since I consider myself to be an Artist in the making I am pondering this question from sculpting and other forms of amazing arts.
Sculpture – as per Wikipedia.org
Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions. It is one of the plastic arts. Durable sculptural processes originally used carving (the removal of material) and modelling (the addition of material, as clay), in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials but, since Modernism, there has been an almost complete freedom of materials and process. A wide variety of materials may be worked by removal such as carving, assembled by welding or modelling, or molded, or cast.
Sculpture in stone survives far better than works of art in perishable materials, and often represents the majority of the surviving works (other than pottery) from ancient cultures, though conversely traditions of sculpture in wood may have vanished almost entirely. However, most ancient sculpture was brightly painted, and this has been lost. The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark, has done extensive research and recreation of the original colors.
Sculpture has been central in religious devotion in many cultures, and until recent centuries large sculptures, too expensive for private individuals to create, were usually an expression of religion or politics. Those cultures whose sculptures have survived in quantities include the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean, India and China, as well as many in South America and Africa
