Examples of Sculptures: Edgar Degas 1881 sculpture by Edgar Degas of a young dance student. The sculpture was originally made in wax before it was cast in 1922 in bronze. The majority of critics were shocked by the piece. They thought it was ugly, that it looked like a medical specimen, in part because Degas exhibited it inside a glass case. Some considered the head and face grotesque and primitive.
Auguste Rodin Rodin was a French sculpture in the early 1900s. Much of his work was not accepted by the public as it wasn’t traditional scupture and pushed the boundaries of what was accepted. The Thinker is a bronze and marble sculpture made in 1902. It was originally meant to depict Dante in front of the Gates of Hell, pondering his great poem.
George Segal George Segal (November 26, 1924 – June 9, 2000) was an American painter and sculptor associated with the Pop Art movement. His works are cast figures using plaster bandages designed for making orthopaedic casts as a sculptural medium. He wrapped a model with bandages in sections, then removed the hardened forms and put them back together with more plaster. Segal's figures had minimal color and detail, which gave them a ghostly, melancholic appearance. In larger works, one or more figures were placed in anonymous, typically urban environments such as a street corner, bus, or diner. I
Artist in Focus: Mark Jenkins American artist who is well known for street installations. Medium he uses is packing tape. Jenkins' practice of street art is to use the "street as a stage" where passersby become actors. Many of his installations have resulted in intervention by the authorities whom he also regards as actors. Most of his early outdoor works were non-commissioned. Indoors he has shown at galleries and museums as well as unconventional settings including a cafeteria, high school locker, and a toilet.   Jenkins workshops which teach his sculpture and installation techniques have been held in North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
