Sculpsit: Between Thought and Action featuring at The Guild is an honest attempt to focus on the transformation of ideas to form where the creative process is delineated by series of drawings, terracota types and eventually transformed into sculpture. Sculpsit, the Latin phrase, he (or she) who sculpted it, was frequently inscribed on sculptures, and was followed by the artist's name. It may also be punningly read as a diminution of sculpture's situation.The term 'Sculpsit' means He or She sculpted it.Upto the 1870's book illustrations required two steps: The artist drawing the design on paper, and then the engraver translating it to wood or copper. Taking from this dialogic relationship between drawing to sculptiure, this exhibition envisions sculpture not as an (abstarct) continuum but as a material envelope that grows organically from the original drawing , sketch, maquette or photograph...whereby the artist plays both the role of the artist and the engraver, emphasising change and transcience, material and materiality. The image and the form reveal the complex interchanges and the ensuing interactions between the artists' drawings and translation of it into form. This unique exhibition curated by #SashaAltaf attempts to document the process involved in contemporary modes of expression through the expanded field of sculpture. The Art works displayed here engage the viewer in understanding the artistic form in which hard materials are worked into three-dimensional art objects. The creative process may not be entirely detailed but The designs embodied in freestanding objects, in reliefs on surfaces,are emphatic of the artistic vision that ranges from the ancient to post-modern to the eclectic set in contexts that envelop the spectator.
