Sculpture for Summer 2017

The variety, creativity and depth of artists creating sculpture in the world today is astounding.  Here are a few artists you may want to check out:

Bogdan Rata

“…one of the most intriguing sculptors from his generation. His new hybrid realism is finding new genetic forms of human anatomy in search of a new posthumanism. Rata multiplies human parts (fingers, ears, and so on) and combines them into new life forms. The newborn creatures seem to result from strange experiments on human bodies in an esthetics lab.”  via

Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst spent ten years creating “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable”.  It’s the latest creation in his long career as an artist. Damien Hirst’s imagination sprawls through 5,000 meters of the  Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana in Venice.  You can see this remarkable work through December 3, 2017.  via   More of “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable”.

 

Nick Bibby

Nick Bibby’s sculpture is imbued with such life and character. His affection for his chosen subjects shines out for all to see. It is truly rare to find an artist with such a talent for modelling. The `Bibby` sculptural style, whilst very definitely figurative (to Nick`s eye, all his subjects are beautiful and he strives to recreate that beauty) he is quite unique in his approach. Fascinated by both form and detail he models with a fluidity and energy that few can equal, simultaneously and effortlessly combining that energy with a jewel-like attention to detail, resulting in sculptures that look as though they live and breathe. Bibby’s sculptures are both beautiful works of art and loving portraits, be they bird, animal, or human. . . 

. . . Nick Bibby lives and sculpts in Devon, a county he loves, and one which provides constant inspiration, from it`s rolling green fields, it`s many rivers and woodlands, to it`s stunning coastline and high moors.  via
