Sculptures in the Home

Create a focal point and conversation starter that will enhance your space with maximum impact by purchasing sculpture. Sculpture is not generally considered first when one sets out to buy art. Questions like, “what will I do with it?” and “where will I put it?” jump to the front of the mind. Think about how sculpture can enhance architectural details that would otherwise go unnoticed such as a vaulted ceiling or a curved window or a niche that seems to have no purpose. Sculpture can be used to convert an otherwise unusable space by turning it into a bold and dramatic statement area. The artist, Chuck Close wrote that sculpture is a unique medium because it “occupies real space like we do…you walk around it and relate to it almost as another person or another object.” Whether inside a room or as the anchor of an outdoor area, you can always count on sculpture to add an element of surprise to any space.
