Quote of the Day
Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.
The best artist has that thought alone Which is contained within the marble shell; The sculptor's hand can only break the spell To free the figures slumbering in the stone.
I work a little bit like a sculptor. When I start, my first idea for a building is with the material. I believe architecture is about that. It's not about paper, it's not about forms. It's about space and material.
A sculptor is a person who is interested in the shape of things, a poet in words, a musician by sounds.
Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.
Any working composer or painter or sculptor will tell you that inspiration comes at the eighth hour of labour rather than as a bolt out of the blue. We have to get our vanities and our preconceptions out of the way and do the work in the time allotted.
The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed - it is a process of elimination.
We take what we think are the tools of spiritual transformation into our own hands and try to sculpt ourselves into robust Christlike specimens. But spiritual transformation is primarily the work of the Holy Spirit. He is the Master Sculptor.
Cutting into color reminds me of the sculptor's direct carving.
I like the idea of being a sculptor. Just me alone, making something - that solitary existence.
No person who is not a great sculptor or painter can be an architect. If he is not a sculptor or painter, he can only be a builder.
It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work.
The idea of being a painter, I've always thought, is better than being an artist or a sculptor.
One can easily tell that the creator of the paintings in the Sistine Chapel was above all a sculptor.
So what we have tried to do in our later buildings is to try to be completely consistent, as a painter is consistent or as a sculptor is consistent. Architecture also must be very consistent.
A sculptor wields The chisel, and the stricken marble grows To beauty.
William C. Bryant
I've had shows as a painter, as a photographer, I've done shows as a sculptor. I've done a lot of different things and it all comes from experiences that you have in your life, in your creative environment. They all help - I don't even know if they help; maybe they make it worse but they all influence each other, for sure.
Emmitt Smith has run past legends, danced with stars and posed for the sculptor crafting his Hall of Fame bust. He's built upon his athletic talents by working hard, seizing opportunities and reaching out to others for advice when he needed it.
A painter, a sculptor, a writer, they can express freely. They don't affect society as a whole. We build buildings that have a purpose, that stay there for hundreds of years or decades.
If the world would only build temples to Machinery in the abstract then everything would be perfect. The painter and sculptor would have plenty to do, and could, in complete peace and suitably honored, pursue their trade without further trouble.
I'm not a sculptor; I'm a hard-edged model maker. You give me a drawing, you give me a prop to replicate, you give me a crane, scaffolding, parts from 'Star Wars' - especially parts from 'Star Wars' - I can do this stuff all day long. It's exactly how I made my living for 15 years.
There's always constantly interesting things to do, and who knows, maybe I will be a good sculptor. I haven't decided what I am going to do next, but I am not going to quit just because I did something interesting.
I think I understand something about space. I think the job of a sculptor is spatial as much as it is to do with form.
I use my hands like a sculptor, to mold and shape the sound I want, to clarify.
The sculptor who deals with form seeks to imprison beauty in a marble statue that will withstand the ravages of time during millenniums; but a marble statue is cold and speaks to but a few of the most evolved who are able to infuse the statue with their own life.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
