Today, the concept and connotation of glass fiber reinforced plastic sculptures are constantly expanding, and they have far exceeded the scope of traditional sculptures. As far as the material and medium of sculpture are concerned, it is already rich and diverse. The sculptor has fully explored new materials and new media to expand the expressive power of sculpture. Contemporary FRP sculpture art is like an experimental field, all visual means are mobilized to create new visual spaces and cultural fields.
In recent years, FRP sculpture has continued to explore and innovate in artistic language and style, presenting a new aesthetic trend: extending from space to time-applying sound, light, electricity and other multimedia technologies to FRP sculpture creation, making space art Expanding from static to dynamic, adding time significance to the continuously changing dynamics, enhancing the impact of art, and discovering more possibilities of contemporary aesthetics; from figurative to non-figurative diffusion, forming realistic styles, symbolism, abstract structures and various new The comprehensive use of materials and new media constitutes works with new visual effects that coexist and interact in different public fields, reflecting a new pattern of openness and tolerance.
It is encouraging that in the pluralistic pattern of contemporary Chinese art, cultural awareness is raised in the creation of FRP sculptures. The sculptor incorporates the freehand spirit of traditional Chinese art into the sculpture language and form, no longer sticks to the Western classical realist artistic style, nor follows the western modern sculpture paradigm. Instead, he expresses the inner charm of the image in a concise and concise language. Artistic effects of writing in form, expressing in form, and having both form and spirit. Whether in the works of older generations of sculptors such as Qian Shaowu, or in the works of young and middle-aged sculptors such as Liming, Li Xiangqun, Wu Weishan, and Outlook, we can all touch the context of Chinese art and feel the strong tradition of national sculpture. Strong breath.
Of course, while seeing new features and achievements in Chinese contemporary sculpture in recent years, we must also clearly understand that glass steel sculptures, like other art categories, also exist in the creation, such as copying Western contemporary art models, and taking pride in "innovation." ; Cater to vulgar tastes, express erotic content, or consider themselves elites, disregarding the public cultural attributes of self-playing, or even enjoy themselves in sarcastic peasant images. These phenomena are contrary to the Chinese art tradition, and are not consistent with the public's aesthetic needs for art, and are inconsistent with the requirements of the times to build a contemporary art system with Chinese style. In addition, in some urban constructions, the construction of public arts such as squares and urban sculptures has become a "face" project, focusing only on external forms. The pursuit of surface effects and the copying and copying of urban sculpture landscapes has led to a serious tendency of homogeneity of public arts based on sculptures, and the humanistic landscapes rich in regional characteristics have faded or disappeared. Eliminating such phenomena requires not only the creators to improve their artistic accomplishment and character, but also the establishment and improvement of scientific mechanisms for the design, selection and implementation of public art, to play the role of public participation, and to form a good cooperation and interaction between artists, the public and government administrations. Relationship to better play the role of sculpture in shaping urban culture.
The fusion of the times, the people and the artistry is the spiritual character formed by Chinese modern sculpture under certain historical conditions, and it is also the most important connotation and value of Chinese contemporary art including glass steel sculpture. We believe and look forward to the creation of more sculptures that better reflect the spirit of the times, meet the needs of the people, and have more Chinese characteristics and style.
