View Full Version : Outdoors versus Indoors

Material/engineering considerations aside, what makes it necessary for a piece to either be exhibited outdoors or indoors?
I see so many beautiful examples of sculpture that would be a success in either setting.

That's a good question. The majority of pieces I do I consider to be for either indoor or outdoor. For most of them the material, scale, finish, etc. are not determining factors. I leave it up to the patron.

This is just to share my limited 2-cents of experience with sculptures.
My sculptures are nearly all small and intended for indoor display. On the other hand, when I made my two biggest ones out of fiberglass, my intention was that they can be for both indoor and outdoor. This is because I have no control over the places that they end up being displayed at exhibitions/shows.
Over here, sculptures for outdoor display should have no parts that can collect rain water. In a tropical country, stagnant water is not desirable as it can bleed mosquitoes easily.
If the same sculptures are to be displayed indoor, I have to make sure that as far as I can flaws and blemishes are repaired. When outdoor, viewers are much less concerned over blemishes on sculptures.
