Sculpture Quotations

Architecture is inhabited sculpture.
Constantin Brancusi

Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something.
Frank Zappa

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.
Alexander Calder

Good painting is the kind that looks like sculpture.

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.
Alicia Keys
