Modern sculpture rarely surprises us anymore. The idea that modern art can only be seen in museums is mistaken. Even people who take no interest in art cannot have failed to notice examples of modern sculpture on display in public places. Stranger forms stand in gardens, and outside buildings and shops. We have got quite used to them. Some so-called ‘modern’ pieces have on display for nearly eighty years. |
Therefore, what’s the modern art? Modern art is a general term used for most of the artistic work reckoned anywhere from the early 17th century until the present time. Modern art refers to the new approach to art which placed emphasis on representing emotions, themes, and various abstractions. Artists experimented with new ways of seeing, with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art, often moving further toward abstraction. Understanding a bit about Modernism and Post Modernism is helpful when discussing modern art. Plus, it is good to be familiar with the lingo of the art world, to use it correctly, especially to avoid confusion when talking with experts. Recently, some people-including myself-were surprised by an exhibition of modern sculpture. The fires thing I saw when I entered the art gallery was a notice which said: ’Do not touch the exhibition. Some of them are dangerous!’The objects on display were pieces of moving sculpture. Oddly shaped forms that are suspended from the ceiling and move in response to a gust of wind are quite familiar to everybody. These objects, however, were different. Lined up against the wall, there were long thin wires attached to metal spheres. The spheres had been magnetized and attracted or repelled each other all the time. These peculiar forms seemed designed to shock people emotionally.
Modern art does not directly resemble the subject, but is abstract. It is more difficult to understand but sometimes understanding is a mute point, the art is to be enjoyed.
