What's the difference between a sculpture and a statue?
If you're new to interior decoration and need to differentiate between a sculpture and a statue, then we can help classify your next piece of art! First and foremost, the biggest difference between sculptures and statues is that sculptures can be (you guessed it!) sculpted! Created through a sculpting process, this simply means that a piece of art has either been carved, chiselled, or hand-moulded to achieve the desired shape. Most often created from malleable materials like clay, sculptures can also be constructed from more robust materials like stone in almost any shape or size.
Statues on the other hand, are usually at least life-size with realistic proportions in order to be considered a statue by many art critics. While statues can be sculpted, moulded, or carved, they can also be cast to create these magnificent pieces of artwork. While these are two distinct art categories, they can overlap whereby a piece of art can be both an eye-catching life-size statue as well as an example of a fine art sculpture. If the artist used an aforementioned sculpting method to create their statue, then it can be classed as both! Although many statues are considered to be incredible creations, they are often not labelled as fine art items.
How to pick the perfect sculpture of statue for your home
When it comes to picking the perfect arty addition to your home, there are several key items that you need to take into consideration! This includes scale, space, and medium, to name just a few important aspects of introducing a sculpture or statue into your home. By way of illustrating, space, (and ceiling heights in particular) comes into play depending on the size of the room you've chosen to adorn with a new item of art. As statues tend to adopt realistic proportions, you'll need high ceilings and plenty of space to prevent it from overwhelming your home. Sculpture on the other hand, can be a wide variety of shapes and sizes, allowing you to find a suitably-sized creation that'll work with your home proportions.
Scale and medium also allow you to experiment with the type and size of artwork that you add to your abode. If you have a plethora of small, framed pieces of artwork, introducing a larger sculpture contrasts against both the medium and scale of your current home display. So, why not experiment with your home and discover how you can transform your interior with just a few well-placed pieces of art?
