What I want to discuss in this article is the most essential issue of the subject of sculpture. The development of sculpture has always been what it is used for, and what kind of function has it experienced from the beginning of its appearance to its development until today. Changes, and sculpture has come to today, how should we view such an art? In the past, the role of sculpture in papers and books was all over the place, and some people who did not understand the subject thought that sculpture was made of mud People, in this article, I want to talk about what kind of world the subject of sculpture has brought us, based on what I know, it has contributed to society, science and even the economy. Ancient kings even used it to Educating the people. It can be said that it is an inescapable companion in human development. What kind of information and wisdom can we get from the excellent sculpture works of our predecessors today? How is it closely related to daily life?
In the contemporary era of sculpture, does its so-called “function” still exist? What is the reason why we sometimes make a sculpture without function in the eyes of others? Did our life change it, or did it change our life? First of all, how to explain the two terms “sculpture” and “function” in the traditional sense of the public? The noun explanation of sculpture on Baidu Encyclopedia: “It is carved and shaped to beautify the city or used for commemorative significance, and it has certain meanings, symbols or pictographic ornaments and memorials”. “Function” is explained as: “The thing, the function that the institution itself has or the role it should play.”
As a subject with a long history, what are the functions of sculpture besides viewing? Today’s sculptures are not only concerned and changed in terms of sculpture techniques, sculpture materials, and sculpture themes, but also the potential functions of sculpture should be widely concerned by people. Sculpture is no longer an ornamental object, a monument created solely for landscaping. Some sculptures will have their true meaning only because of the participation of viewers. In the contemporary era, sculpture carries not only the social value of sculpture itself, but also the artistic value of sculpture, that is, it exists in the form of a sculptor’s emotional carrier.
When we look around the current environment, in the 21st century, we have gone through the industrial revolution, the era of electrification, the electronic era, and the cloud era. The speed of functional development in the IT world has amazed us and brought earth-shaking changes to our lives. It can be said that which industry is more closely related to the IT industry in modern society, which industry develops more rapidly. When we think about sculpture creation in the new environment, we cannot ignore new technologies and the intervention of IT. This will profoundly change the process and results of sculpting creation. The emergence of 3D printers is of great significance. With this new technology With the continuous improvement and maturity, his revolutionary significance will be more and more strongly reflected. Artists must be liberated from traditional sculpture techniques, and the obstacles of materialization of thinking will be ignored. But at the same time, the identity of sculptors will become more ambiguous, sculptors will face the challenges of art lovers in various industries, and the threshold of sculpture will be lower and lower.
For sculpture, it is development and opportunity, and for Yimujia, it is a cruel competition. This concept also blurs the essential role of contemporary sculpture. With the development of the concept of sculpture, there are more types of sculpture. Artists are always looking for new systems and new expressions. The results of such experiments cannot be predicted, sometimes Thinking with an illogical idea is also an artistic logic. In many disciplines, there is no single correct answer for artistic creation. It is difficult to distinguish between art and science. The artistic creation of sculpture comes from creation, and sculpture and humanities promote and develop each other. It enriches our spiritual world. Excellent sculpture works, like music and painting, are the resonance of human nature from the primitive. It does not need the same region and the same language to understand art. The era of using sculpture as a tool has passed. Sculpture is like a mirror. It can find out the joys, sorrows and joys, warmth and warmth in the world. It can reflect the development and civilization of society. It is the opening of another space. We can step sideways and enter a world other than reality. When we use art to feel the world and feel nature, we are so humble and small, because it is not enough to describe the world with sculptures.
The development of stainless steel sculpture art to the present is complicated in schools and techniques, because the information we inherit is so huge. Everyone behaves and thinks differently. But the same is that at the moment sculpture itself is a tool and a medium. It enables artists to use this medium directly or indirectly, single or mixed to express personal behaviors and concepts. This is the most mainstream function of current sculpture, and this also makes this art continue to develop. Appreciated and loved by human beings.
