Sculptures were already being created by prehistoric artists. The Greeks oriented themselves to complete humankind and fashioned idealised, anatomically-correct sculptures. The best example, which is thought to have had a vast influence on the Renaissance, is the statue of Laocoön and his sons. In the Middle Ages, there was a move away from the beautiful and life-like representations in favour of the intention und significance that the Christian sculptures are primarily said to have had.
LIFE IS COLOUR
YOUR PAST IS THE RAINBOW
THE RAINBOW IS BORN OF WATER AND LIGHT
YOU KNOW NOTHING OF A CITY AT THE END OF THE ROAD
WHITE HORSES SPRING FROM THE SEA
THE WOMAN IN WORK CLOTHES IS A PRINCESS
GLASS TOWERS CAN TUMBLE DOWN
ONLY AIR IS NEEDED
CHAINS OF THE PAST
SHALL BECOME THE ARMOUR OF TOMORROW
LIFE IS A BOOK
IN WHICH I DON’T WANT TO STOP WRITING
The figures became more static and disproportionate. Famous sculptures were created by the Italian renaissance sculptor, Michelangelo, among others. The artists of this period once again oriented themselves to Antiquity and their ideals, remaining true to the real form until into the nineteenth century. Modern, contemporary sculpture, which was primarily characterised by new subjects, designs and materials, was established by Auguste Rodin in particular.
While sculptures were originally static works of art, modern artists created sculptures that could move or be moved. Such works are also described as “kinetic art”. (Source: WIKIPEDIA 2010)
My word sculptures are the shells of freed text structures, which allow the universal essentials to appear and evoke something in humans. (Eschara 2010)
