The View from a Drawbridge

The random musings of a bridgetender with entirely too much time on her hands.

Sculptures take art to the next dimension. Unlike artists who create images on a flat surface, sculptors must consider how their work will look from every angle. They also have to think about the play of light and shadow, and be mindful of the negative space (in an artistic sense, not an emotional one) that their work will create. If the art is to be displayed outside, they also have to think about the weather and seasonal changes, and how this might change the work over time. Even pigeons play a part in the thought process.

I am always looking out for public art in my travels, but sculptures, in particular, invoke strong emotions within me, and always cause me to stop and think. I’m forever grateful for their impact on my life. Receiving pictures of sculptures from all over the world, mostly from my Pokemon Go app, helped inspire me to create a Facebook group called Public Art Lovers, which I invite you to join. I’d love to see pictures of the sculptures you’ve encountered! (But please answer the 4 membership questions, or your request to join the group will be denied. I’m getting sick of bots attempting to gain legitimacy through my group.)

Meanwhile, here are some Pokemon Go images for you to enjoy.
