Sculpture and Emotion

Ying LI


Sculptures carries the creators’ emotions, which is the essence of the art. The expression of emotion is the most important element in a sculpture creation. Emotion is the perception of life and aggregation of various feelings. Sculpture full of real sentiments can touch the viewers’ hearts. Emotion is also the driving force of sculpture creation, and the creation of sculpture beauty is the process of devoting creators’ mind to impregnate ones’ emotions into the art piece. The presence of emotion runs through the entire process of sculpture creation, which reflects the artists’ perspective, knowledge, and concepts, generating cultural symbols and spiritually and emotionally connecting with the audiences. This kind of emotional indoctrination and feedback is exactly the charisma of sculpture. Art comes from life, and emotion is obtained from long-term life practice. The later needs to be expressed by means and methods. Only when the artists’ emotion expressed through work makes the audiences understand, experience, and resonate can it be regarded as a good piece of art.
