Art is essential in making any space feel finished…whole…complete
. But sometimes we want a work of art that truly makes a statement, and nothing adds drama to a room like sculptural art! Whether it is for your wall, as table décor, or even something to spice up your floor, art with dimension truly stands out as a conversation piece. This week we’re showcasing some of the fabulous sculptural art from our ACA 2012 artists!

Nothing says unique & ‘one of a kind’ like a work of art that literally “thinks outside the box.” Any art lover knows most works of art are rectangles or squares with corners and linear edges. And, undoubtedly, we love the clean and picturesque shape of a canvas or frame. But what about when we want to do something... different

An artist duo, Collin Rowland and Dan Augur (AKA ‘Rowland Augur’) definitely do different. Their wall sculptures are incredibly detailed and dynamic, mixing together metal, photography, plexiglass, paint, wood & resin. This specific piece, “Spark of Life” balances playfulness and sophistication—and is not a work of art you see & soon forget.
FINE ART; SUR LA TABLE
There is something so beautiful in design when a statement piece is placed at a tangible level among our everyday things where our eyes can closely search the details and our hands are taunted to touch.

This sculpture by artist, Lisa Merida-Paytes is difficult to do justice through photographs. It is created with glass, slate, copper wire, and ceramic. Light pours through the glass, showcasing the vibrancy of the blues and the spectacular detail in the copper wiring.
Robert Kelly sculpts figures from bronze and marble. “Maria” is an expressive bronze sculpture of the figure of a woman reaching, bringing weight, warmth, and shine to any vignette in your home. If you look closely at the surface of the sculpture you will see the beautiful texture and varying tones that make this piece so special.

This welded steel sculpture by artist Andrea Waxman Mulcahy is just. plain. cool. The power-coated surface is a deep purple color with subtle sparkles. It is an impressive use of negative space and composition, and was built with a balance point to sit seamlessly on any surface.

GROUNDED BY GRACE
Douwe Blumberg’s bronze sculpture is simply stunning. The movement and organic shapes -along with its long and tall composition- there is something so mature, elegant, and almost dance-like about it. Douwe explains that his sculpture is “an exploration of grace and texture. In developing this pose I strove for sinuous movement from every angle.”
