Color In Contemporary Sculpture

Susan Kaparov sculpture

Color has been a part of sculpture since ancient days. The arts of ancient Greece have exercised an enormous influence on the culture of many countries, particularly in the areas of sculpture and architecture. In the West, the art of the Roman Empire was largely derived from Greek models. In the East, Alexander the Great's conquests initiated several centuries of exchange between Greek, Central Asian and Indian cultures, resulting in Greco-Buddhist art, with ramifications as far as Japan. Following the Renaissance in Europe, the humanist aesthetic and the high technical standards of Greek art inspired generations of European artists. Well into the 19th century, the classical tradition derived from Greece dominated the art of the western world.

Contemporary artists have embraced color enthusiastically and it has enlivened many genres of sculpture from minimal to installation, conceptual, Pop and abstract.
