What is the example of sculpture?


Wiki User

Any artwork that is created to exist in a three-dimensional volumetric space and be viewed as an object that occupies said space would be considered a sculpture. This is opposed to an artwork that is created to be seen as an image ( ie a rock on a pedestal vs a photo on a wall). This definition is not absolute, but is a good starting point. Over the past century artists have questioned and tested the boundaries of this definition ( see Lichtenstein's sculptures or paintings by Jasper Johns as counter examples)
