Art sculpture has become a mainframe in public places and in homes throughout the world with each piece being carefully crafted by its creator.  Purchasing a piece of art sculpture is done, many times, by the heart rather than by the mind.  This is how this type of art attracts people to it.  It is often constructed by the creator with emotion and therefore, one is drawn to it by the heart.

There are so many pieces of art sculpture around that many times it gets looked past or even taken for granted.  Some pieces are abstract, where the subject is simplified, and it is not an actual representation of something in nature.  Many times the subject is altered or distorted.  Some pieces are considered to be nonobjective.  This means that the artist didn't use any subject in nature, and they are done purely from ideas.  They create using lines, colors, textures, and spatial relations.  Others are considered to be installation.  This type of piece is not a piece that can be transferred or moved in most cases.  It is specifically designed for that particular space or location.  Most often, it includes an assortment of mediums such as sound, video, water, or lights.  These are just a few examples of different types of art sculpture.

To define an art sculpture would be to define the word sculpture itself.  Many times it can feel like an overused word and that it represents so many things.  That would be because it does.  A true definition of the word is a three-dimensional piece of art work that is created by shaping a singular or multiple mediums.  These can be, quite literally, anything that can be shaped or molded.  They may be clay, plastic, soft metals, ice, or sand to list a few.  The definition may seem broad, but it encompasses many different types of sculpture work.

This is an extremely expressive type of work as well.  Many artists enjoy doing this type of work because it can really be interpreted by the people who view it.  The creators of these pieces have their own ideas of how it should look or be represented and viewed.  But really, their true intent is to draw people in and make them think about the piece.  Some of the most inspiring pieces are ones that would be considered installation pieces.  They are there to transport people into another realm so to speak.

What is so amazing and wonderful about this type of work is that one doesn't have to be an expert to gain something from these pieces.  They can be viewed and enjoyed by even a layperson.  Probably a great example of that is the “LOVE” sculpture.  It is made from cor-ten steel.  It has been on exhibit since 1970 in the Indianapolis Museum of Art.  Versions of it are also on display in New York City, Scottsdale's Civic Center,”LOVE Park” in Philadelphia, as well as dozens of other places throughout the United States and the world.  It is also done in other languages like Hebrew and Italian.  This is a great example because each person that views this piece will come away with a different feeling or a different emotion.  Each individual has their own definition of love.  This piece doesn't try to define the word.  It just makes us think, as most pieces do.
