Sculpture World International

Sculpture doesn’t have to possess a finite set of rules or limits, at least not according to some ground-breaking pioneers in the evolving world of art and design.

One notable persona who leads the notion that art in itself can be much more than just a singular static idea, is Janet Echelman from Tampa, Florida. A recipient of notable fellowships from Harvard University and the Guggenheim Institute, Janet’s works have been publicly applauded as dynamic, responsive and ever-changing examples of how art can defy categorization and evolve into large-scale immersive experiences that viewers themselves can leap into.

Most of her vibrantly moving art pieces are created with cutting edge technology, but the ideas behind them are drawn meticulously from ancient styles of cultural craftsmanship and handiwork. They contort and shift gracefully when exposed to the imminent forces of our natural surroundings, such as light, air and water.

Janet’s monumental works have been featured all over the world, and she herself has given inspirational talks about art at events like the Ted conference of 2011. Her biography, history of works and other articles can be seen on her website; www.echelman.com, which showcases a majority of her building-sized works on its landing page.
With every state of matter, one can have an idea of its tangency. Water is wet, concrete is hard, air is untouchable, and one artist from Mount Maunganui in New Zealand, pushes the limit between the differences of these facts.

These are the unmistakable works of Ben Young, a surfer and boat builder turned professional sculptor through his intrepid love for the ocean. Much of Ben’s finished pieces resemble the cool bay waters of his country, set into a dynamic scene through his use of layered glass and other types of industrial materials.

His process is a very meticulous one, starting off with the initial sketching of his artworks, later followed by the careful hand-cutting of several clear glass sheets. The optically pure properties of glass make it an ingenious element for him to express the clarity and serenity of water in his many breath-taking masterpieces.

His website brokenliquid.com, showcases much of his works through a washed-minimalistic style. Ben has been adamantly creating his mixed-media sculptures for over 15 years now, with exhibits spanning across Australia, and all over the world.
Today, with the advent of technologies in manufacturing, designing and idea-scaping, many may think that a sculptor's job becomes significantly easier with the passage of time. Artists can take advantage of these evolving advancements in human history and create wonderful visual stimulations that captivate and enthral audiences from around the world.

Well, with these benefits also come an increasing number of new talents and inspirations. The world of art has only become more competitive for emerging artists and professionals alike. It's not easy to make a name in the art world, a young artist needs a unique taste to their style in order to catch the world by surprise.

This is our org's simple blog about some of the more notable artists that have been growing in both style and recognition throughout the worldwide sculpture community. We believe in sharing their works with students, enthusiasts and creative professionals alike, so that each of us may appreciate and learn from the masterpieces created with the hardwork, unique style and perseverance- shown by artists like these around the globe.
