Topic: Sculptures

Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions. It is one of the plastic arts. Durable sculptural processes originally used carving (the removal of material) and modelling (the addition of material, as clay), in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials but, since modernism, shifts in sculptural process led to an almost complete freedom of materials and process. A wide variety of materials may be worked by removal such as carving, assembled by welding or modelling, or molded, or cast.

Sculpture in stone survives far better than works of art in perishable materials, and often represents the majority of the surviving works (other than pottery) from ancient cultures, though conversely traditions of sculpture in wood may have vanished almost entirely. However, most ancient sculpture was brightly painted, and this has been lost.

Sculpture has been central in religious devotion in many cultures, and until recent centuries large sculptures, too expensive for private individuals to create, were usually an expression of religion or politics. Those cultures whose sculptures have survived in quantities include the cultures of the Ancient Mediterranean, India and China, as well as many in South America and Africa.

The Western tradition of sculpture began in Ancient Greece, and Greece is widely seen as producing great masterpieces in the classical period. During the Middle Ages, Gothic sculpture represented the agonies and passions of the Christian faith. The revival of classical models in the Renaissance produced famous sculptures such as Michelangelo’s David. Modernist sculpture moved away from traditional processes and the emphasis on the depiction of the human body, with the making of constructed sculpture, and the presentation of found objects as finished art works.

Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada possess many different styles of art from two dimensional pieces to three dimensional pieces. Painting is obviously the most common medium used, but three dimensional artwork is becoming more and more popular. Sculptures are three dimensional art pieces. Salvador Dali dabbled in painting, drawing, photography, sculpting, and cinematography. He was a great Spanish surrealist. Politics later disconnected Dali from the surrealist movement, but he always considered himself a surrealist as is portrayed in his work.

Salvador Dali’s piece “Dance of Time III” is seen displayed at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada. Dali’s “Dance of Time III” is a bronze sculpture of a melted pocket watch. Dali’s melting watches are seen in many of Dali’s works, and are very well-known. “Dance of Time III is the third piece of his Dance of Time series. Dali is described as being eccentric. He is known for his flamboyant moustache. He definitely danced to his own beat as he depicted in his sculpture. Science also played a major role in Dali’s life. The idea of quantum mechanics and Werner Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle were accepted into the field of science. Time has so much to do with science hence the watch. Time is precise in respect to science, but Dali includes the human notion of time as being unknown.
