There was a “pop-up shop” in Newport News that I visited over the holidays which was selling a range of gifts, including paintings, sculpture, clothing, jewelry, and other assorted arts and crafts. There were a series of small sculptures – I’m guessing by the same artist – that featured what I might politely call “unattractive” […]
We were recently notified that Artsology was named by Feedspot as a Top-50 blog for coverage of sculpture, ranking #6 on the list. While sculpture is certainly not the only thing we cover on the Artsology Blog, you can get a sense of the sculpture-related coverage we’ve had here.
I was recently introduced to the art of Meta Warrick Fuller (1877-1968), and thought it would be interesting to share some highlights of her career and art. She was a multi-talented African-American artist who wrote poetry, painted, and sculpted, and was a highly-accomplished person. As a high school student, she had an art project that […]
I saw an impressive display of ceramic work by artist Kathy Butterly at the recent Armory Show. You can see the way her work was displayed in the booth of Tibor de Nagy Gallery below. Scroll down for more … Butterly thinks of herself as a painter who happens to work with clay in three […]
I saw this piece by Not Vital, below left, at the 2017 Armory Show. The title of the piece is “Head (Dong Xu),” 2014, and it’s a stainless steel sculpture with PVD coaqting measuring approximately 69 x 59 x 48 inches. The surface is so-perfectly polished and smooth, it’s like a mirror, as you can […]
When we were in St. John a few weeks ago, my son found this odd little piece of bone(?) or something that appears to be a fragment of marine life on the beach. There’s something organic about it, and I have no idea if it came from a sea animal, or coral, or something else. […]
I picked a good day to go into NYC and see the Whitney Biennial … sunny and in the high 70s, so I could mix up the time spent inside the museum with time outside on the terraces – and later, walking the High Line. At any rate, a sunny day is also a good […]
I don’t get a chance to see large-scale Alexander Calder sculptures very often, but when I do, I appreciate the fact that they take on multiple appearances, depending on the angle at which one sees it. I’ve discussed this a bit in the past, with the feature on Calder’s large “stabile” sculpture titled “L’Homme,” which […]
My wife is in Houston on a business trip, and sent me a couple photos from her visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The photos are all from the Ron Mueck exhibition, which runs through August 13th this summer. If you’re not familiar with Mueck’s work, he makes hyper-realist sculptures that are usually […]
I’m getting a few dispatches from my wife, who is in Houston on a business trip. Earlier in the day, it was hyper realist sculptures at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and now it’s this discarded Dalmatian at Rice University. She was walking along Rice Boulevard on the edge of Rice University, as one […]
I’m a novice when it comes to ceramics, but these sculptural pieces by Monty J. Mattison just blow me away. Monty J. is a quintessential story of a rising New York City artist: he buses tables at a restaurant in Manhattan while creating these other-worldly vessels at his studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. He only makes […]
I was walking around Jersey City last night after attending an art opening, and happened upon this sculpture of Jackie Robinson by artist Susan Wagner. I wasn’t sure why a sculpture of the famous Brooklyn Dodger would be perched in Jersey City, and I was curious to find out why … see more and learn […]
Friedrich Engels was a German philosopher, social scientist, journalist, and businessman who worked with Karl Marx in developing Marxist theory. He’s also the inspiration for a giant 16 foot-tall sculpture of his head (and significant beard) meant for climbing, located at the University of Salford in Manchester, England. The sculpture was conceived and created by […]
