They say the artist’s eye sees what others cannot see and this is really proven by the many examples of art that are dotted around the world. It is indeed astonishing to see bits of material like clay, metal, stone, and wood show themselves in a different avatar to the artist’s eyes than when we (by that we mean non-artists) see them. You can see what we mean by this when you look at the extraordinary line and wire sculptures that so charmingly dot this article. Where most people see bits of wire and line, the artist has seen art that almost seems to come alive. There is a sense of energy and movement in these bits of metal that almost make you wait with bated breath to see the work of art come to life and take off or do something that assures that it is alive. There is much to be admired about sculptures whether it is basic wire sculptures or astonishingly life-like figurative sculptures and this can literally leave you gasping for breath at the skill, imagination and talent that has gone into the making of such art.
Just imagine the way the artist’s imagination and the way it would have visualized something like gleaming and glowing but delicate glass sculptures from something as mundane as sand, which is the raw material for glass. The thing about an artist’s skill and imagination is that it sees no limit in anything and that is why they have done such incredible work like these creative public structures around the world that you will want to see time and again.
Extraordinary Line And Wire Sculptures
If you ask us to specify one thing that makes line and wire sculptures so exceptional and extraordinary, then we are sure that we will be at a loss for words. But even so, we would like to put forth some points that came to us when you look at the amazing work these line and wire sculptors have done.
The emotions are so clear: When you see the line sculpture like that of the back of a woman who is looking over her shoulder, you realize that she seems to waiting for something. She is vulnerable and feminine and also seems to emit a feeling curiosity. If asked to describe what this particular piece means, then we will tell you it means a woman who is dressed well and waiting for someone to turn up. Or it could be the flirtatious glance of a woman who is looking back to see if her lover has looked at her in admiration or not.
The lines are alive and moving: If you look at some of the wire and line sculptures like that of a dancer, then you realize that it is only a matter of a few twists and arrangements of the wire at the heart of the matter but they seem so much more. Your logical mind knows they are still but the artistic eye tends to disagree and suggest that there is movement in the work of art. This is the beauty of the line and wire sculptures.
As dense or as minimal as you please: Just because the artist is working with simple materials like wire and using only basic tools does not mean that the work is going to be monotonous. Actually, even this simple material in the hands of the right artist shows a huge range of variety from the most dense of sculptures to the most minimalistic. In some instances like the line sculpture of the hangers hanging with some clothing outlines seem to suggest so much more. The denser works of art like the one of the woman lifting her hair off her neck and shoulders seems to suggest a sensual woman waiting for her lover to turn up.
Ranging from quirky to profound: Works of art, are an expression of what the artist feels and wants from the center of his artistic imagination. That is why not all works of art using wires are funny or quirky. There are some pieces that show a serious side of art that will have you thinking hard.
