Sculptor short interview

Today met an sculptor, will visit his studio soon. Just drop down some notes about what he said, will prepare some question for visiting his studio.

sculptors path issue:

– every year so many sculpture student graduate but only a few keep on working as sculptor –

– a sculptor need space to make, for storage –

– renting a studio is important but not easy –

– uni may only teach the concept part –

– dentist or doctor graduate with skills, could find job; sculptors graduate and need to walk on their own –

sculpture issue:

– making abstract art is difficult to judge –

– anything could be good or bad in the world of abstract –

– where he born without any sculpture history; for Asia, there are many like religion, soldiers, etc –

To be continue~

the whole exhibition is by different gallery, some gallery even run by the artist him/herself, making me think of……could I do it myself?! promoting myself, selling my art, promoting others making profit….staying alive…….in artist path.
