The art of modern sculpture: an exploration of contemporary creativity and artistic expression

Sculpture is an art specific to modeling artists to create forms and volumes from various materials. You will find ornaments in relief, modeling, round-bump, with welds, etc. As you have understood, there can be different types of sculptures depending on the technique favored by each artist.

The word comes from the Latin word "sculpere" which means "to carve" or "to remove parts from a stone". Stone carving requires the expertise of a proven talent sculptor who is able to shape relatively common objects. In the tenth century, the sculptor was assisted by a team: master builder and stone cutters.

Sculpture differs from modeling, but it has always been associated with painting. These two categories of artists came from the Middle Ages and belonged to a similar professional community.
Painting and ornament finally separated
The distinction of these two trades is officially made in 1648 in France with the creation of painting and sculpture academies. It is nevertheless to be noted that many artists remain painters and sculptors at the same time. In the nineteenth century, the "sculptor" is still distinguished, carving solid materials such as wood, stone or ivory from the "statuary" who focuses on achievements in earth, wax or plaster.

The diversity of contemporary sculptures

There are two main categories of sculptures: relief and round-bump. The former is an ornament that is attached to a background and evolves out of this background. The crushed relief has a low relief rate and whose contours are finely incised. There is low-relief, high-relief and intaglio. The round-bump is edited in such a way as to be able to observe it from all sides or almost. This technique relies on a base or ground and is located in a niche. The most famous ornament in this version evokes Michelangelo juggling these two principles.
Characters are half-emerged from the marble block.

At Carré d'artistes, you will find talented sculptors each with their distinct style. The polished and varnished copper bust by Frédéric Fortuné is a striking contemporary sculpture that catches the eye instantly. Coming from a family of art enthusiasts, this artist has been immersed in creative practices since his earliest childhood. His contemporary art combines resin and metal, but copper remains his favorite material. The artwork 'Flexo' by Zed continues to make its way. It can be found in a variety of colors and diverse poses. Floh sends us colorful depictions from an imaginary universe.

These evoke the joy of childhood, interpreting a message of humor and cheerfulness. Like his father and grandfather, who were welders and metallurgists, Nikola Vudrag chose to delve into metalwork as art. The artist draws his inspiration from disciplines such as theology, philosophy, mathematics, anthropology, and sciences. To this day, Vudrag is among the notable specialists in Croatia.
