Simplicity is art – Carol Gold Sculpture

Simplicity  is art – Carol Gold Sculpture

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1937, Carol Gold grew up on a dairy farm in western Massachusetts. Between 1956 and 1960, she studied art at Cornell University, and the museum school in Boston. Fourteen years later, her children old enough for her to return to sculpting full time, her work began develop in earnest.

Bronze casting techniques learned at the College of Martin in 1977-1978 enabled Gold to build and operate her own foundry. This intimacy with the entire casting process profoundly affected the evolution of her sculpture. She began to think in terms of the potential of the metal and started to use wax as her creative medium rather than the clay of her initials sculptures.

Simplicity is primary in her continuous search for forms with which to best express the essence of motion and mood. Through the textures and attitude of her figures and animals she strives to convey her feelings about nature and human character.

For the past 25 years, Gold’s work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. and Canada. Among her numerous awards are those received from the National Sculpture Society and the North American Sculpture Exhibition. Public commissions include sculptures for the city of Bakersfield, California, and for the campus of Southwest Oregon Community College in Coos Bay, Oregon.

“Humanity against Evil” by Gaetano Cellini #Art #Sculpture

The Last Island


“Humanity against Evil” – now at Rome’s National Gallery of Modern Art – was one of the first works by Ravenna-born sculptor Gaetano Cellini (1873-1937).

This allegoric, material expression of an ideal, is a perfect fit for Auguste Rodin’s quotation, “Art is the most sublime mission of mankind, since it is the expression of thought, which seeks to understand the world and to make it understood.”

Rodin was indubitably a source of inspiration for Cellini, who presented the plaster cast for this sculpture at the 1906 Milan Expo. On the base, he inscribed the title of the work and a couplet explaining its meaning: “Thus I’ll extirpate using my teeth and nails / the eternal pain that stings my heart”. He completed the actual marble sculpture in 1908.

Cellini was obviously inspired by Michelangelo as well – and the latter might have chosen a different caption for the muscular tension of…

Poetic Fountain Sculptures Designed for Water to Creatively Cascade #Art

The Last Island

These stunning wood and bronze sculptures radiate a sense of tranquillity that complements the endless flowing water pouring forth from their limbs, hair, waists, and clothes. Created by Malgorzata Chodakowska, each piece balances beautiful lines with an energetic tension that speaks to the artist’s craftsmanship. Born in Poland, Chodakowska went on to study sculptural art in Warsaw and Vienna and this classical training becomes apparent in the immaculate details of her angelic water carriers.

Water fountains have long since been a symbol for eternity, youth, and the idea of infinite springing from apparent nothingness. So Chodakowska’s rapturous figures seem to be the perfect bearers of this vital element. Youthful and luminous, the beautiful sculptures nonetheless transmit an innate power and boundless feminine energy bursting with great vigor. Each endless stream poetically completes the figure (or figures), adding a sense of story and emotion.
