Re: Artist defends surfing sculpture amid criticism
Heath, I have to say I disagree BIG TIME!!! Pieces that are life casts should not be considered as sculpture (at least not in the traditional sence). If I were looking at two sculptures of the same person and one was a life cast and the other was sculpted, even if they were identical, my respect goes to the sculpted piece. More so in fact, because it looks like the one that was simply coppied off the form. Life casts are good for the SFX industry where exacting standards and time are of the essence, but I feel they have no place in traditional art. Especialy not in public monuments.
