Sculpture

Painting has the ability to create the illusion of a 3D image on a flat surface. A good painting can be captivating to the onlooker drawing them in to its own magical world. What is the difference however between painting and sculpture? While painting creates a beautiful and clever illusion of a 3D image a sculpture is by its very nature 3D and its various textures and shapes can be tangibly seen as well as touched by the observer. Because of its 3D, very present nature, sculpture is extremely engaging. From small tiny sculpted creations through to huge sculpted statues or other monumental forms, sculpture knows no bounds. Sculpture can be abstract however more often than not, sculpture tends to represent familiar forms - be they human, animal or object.
