What is sculpture?

Sculpture is the art of volume, fullness, and emptiness. Unlike a painting that has only one composition, a sculptural work contains as many compositions as there are viewing angles. With each shift in perspective, the relationship of the sculpture's parts to the whole changes. The shapes that sculptors create depend on many factors, but primarily on the material whose specific characteristics we learn to respect and the ways in which we can shape those materials.

Unlike a painting that has only two dimensions, a sculpture has a third dimension – depth. That's why it's said that a sculptural work is felt, and even read, by touch. If clay, plasticine, stone, or wood are the ways in which you write or want to write your thoughts and ideas, then sculpture is the path for you.
