Includes: Graham Bennett, Bing Dawe, Madeleine Child, Lauren Lysaght, Nic Moon, Julie Ross, Nate Savill, Jeff Thomson & Greer Twiss.

 

The aesthetic raw material of sculpture is, so to speak, the whole realm of expressive three-dimensional form. A sculpture may draw upon what already exists in the endless variety of natural and man-made form, or it may be an art of pure invention. It has been used to express a vast range of human emotions and feelings from the most tender and delicate to the most violent and ecstatic.

All human beings, intimately involved from birth with the world of three-dimensional form, learn something of its structural and expressive properties and develop emotional responses to them. This combination of understanding and sensitive response, often called a sense of form, can becultivated and refined. It is to this sense of form that the art of sculpture primarily appeals.
