Quote of the Day
Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something.
I'm a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to always be nice, always smiling, always happy, that's not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiselled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand.
What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul.
Sculpture is the art of the intelligence.
Why must art be static? You look at an abstraction, sculptured or painted, an entirely exciting arrangement of planes, spheres, nuclei, entirely without meaning. It would be perfect, but it is always still. The next step in sculpture is motion.
Does art have a future? Performance genres like opera, theater, music and dance are thriving all over the world, but the visual arts have been in slow decline for nearly 40 years. No major figure of profound influence has emerged in painting or sculpture since the waning of Pop Art and the birth of Minimalism in the early 1970s.
Painting is so poetic, while sculpture is more logical and scientific and makes you worry about gravity.
Writing nonfiction is more like sculpture, a matter of shaping the research into the finished thing. Novels are like paintings, specifically watercolors. Every stroke you put down you have to go with. Of course you can rewrite, but the original strokes are still there in the texture of the thing.
All of Koons's best art - the encased vacuum cleaners, the stainless-steel Rabbit (the late-twentieth century's signature work of Simulationist sculpture), the amazing gleaming Balloon Dog, and the cast-iron re-creation of a Civil War mortar exhibited last month at the Armory - has simultaneously flaunted extreme realism, idealism, and fantasy.
At a certain point, I just put the building and the art impulse together. I decided that building was a legitimate way to make sculpture.

It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, and if you can walk around it it's a sculpture.
Painting, sculpture and architecture are finished, but the art habit continues.
Sculpture is the art of the hole and the lump.
The skull is nature's sculpture.
A sculpture is just a painting cut out and stood up somewhere.
Sculpture is the best comment that a painter can make on painting.
Good painting is the kind that looks like sculpture.
I love Rauschenberg. I love that he created a turning point in visual history, that he redefined the idea of beauty, that he combined painting, sculpture, photography, and everyday life with such gall, and that he was interested in, as he put it, 'the ability to conceive failure as progress.'
So, in other words, how you respond to a sculpture, how a viewer sees the sculpture, is vital.
Moonlight is sculpture.
You have to create your life. You have to carve it, like a sculpture.
The nearest approach I have ever seen to the symmetry of ancient sculpture was among the Arab tribes of Ethiopia. Our Saxon race can supply the athlete, but not the Apollo.
I look at every piece of furniture and every object as an individual sculpture.
'6 Times' is an attempt to reinvestigate the social responsibility of sculpture. The body in question is a particular body, but it doesn't really matter whose it is.
