A bas relief (French for Relief) is a sculptural technique where the sculpted elements remain attached to the solid background surface of the same material. Coming from the Latin verb "Relevo" it litterally means "to raise". The relief technique has been used in sculpture for thousands of years from Persia to Cambodia and from Ancient Greece to Modern American sculptures thousands of famous artists have used low relief or high relief. During the 20th Century bas relief was mostly used for smaller works or combined with higher relief to portray a sense of distance. Also the intent was to give additional depth to the composition often including figures and a landscape or architectural elements as a background. Notable examples can be found in Egyptian temples such as the Temple of Karnak as well as the Persepolis, Parthenon, the Ishtar Gate of Babylon, Elephanta Caves in India and Mount Rushomore National Memorial in USA. All are examples of varying relief techniques used for an artistic purpose.

Artists Describing Their Art:

Jerry Di Falco - Photography inspires my art and acts as a vital element in my etchings. The images I employ originate from my own photographs, as well as from the images I find from my research into the digital archives of universities, historical societies, libraries, and museums. Upon locating a documented scene I wish to etch, my first step involves the execution of two to five original drawings of the photograph. My collaboration between photography and printmaking allows me the independence to integrate my personal interpretations into the scene. Moreover, I create bridges between the physical and metaphysical visual realities in the same way that a camera intersects with human creativity . . . the nexus between the mechanical and the cerebral art tools. Art unveils everything that we mask behind our belief systems conversely, I strive in my creations to clarify those phenomena we overlook as a result of our egocentric assumptions. Ironically enough, I blame this failure to notice things, a process I label, the phenomenology of connectedness, on todayaEURtms very infatuation with and addiction to the new communicational technologies of social media. My artworks therefore become like windows through which to examine the mysteries of aEURoeeveryday consciousnessaEUR. In fact, my use of ...

Jose Luis Lazaro Ferre - I think the easiest way to define my activity as an artist and my intellectual approach to art would be to quote Apollinaire's thesis in his Les Peintres cubistes: meditations esthetiques, especially the following sections: ... Therefore, as an offer to the spirit, in the plastic arts, the fourth dimension should be generated by the three known dimensions: represented by the immensity of space eternally present in all the dimensions of a given moment ... Cubism differs from the painting that came before it because it is not the art of imitation, but the art of thought raised to the level of creation ... Scientific cubism is one of the pure trends. It is the art of painting new compositions with elements taken not from visual reality, but from the reality of knowledge ... Physical cubism is the art of painting compositions with elements taken primarily from virtual reality In my painting, I work with geometric figures arranged on different planes that overlap one another and blend into real shapes (bottles, cats, birds, fruit), fabricated objects (small origami birds and paper boats) and everyday things (hats, shoes, etc.) to create a world of mystery and sensuality. The lines I draw are ...

Ted Schaal - Lately I have been exploring the use of two enduring materials, bronze and stainless steel. I enjoy the juxtaposition of the primitive texture in the bronze with the mirror polished modern look of the stainless. Balance and symmetry dominate simple geometric forms. These sculptures are made to last through the ages with the highest level of craftsmanship and quality metals. Most of my latest work can be scaled up for public or corporate settings and commission inquiries are welcome. With over 20 years of sculpture experience anything is possible from desk top size to monumental fountains and sculpture. ...

David Vanorbeek - Metal speaks to me. Firstly it calls to me, drawing me to it with a magnetic pull that is impossible to resist. I might be walking or driving when suddenly I know for certain that discarded and abandoned metal is nearby, waiting for me to find it. And I always do. And then, when I see the beauty of the metal, it speaks to me again, telling me how it must be worked and shaped into a piece of sculpture that everyone can enjoy and share. For me, the great joy in my work comes from turning something considered worthless into the artwork it becomes. In this way I am showing my respect for the metal. The thread that runs like red wire through all my work is recycling. If I could, I would turn all the old metal and scrap iron I find into a museum of modern art. Just thinking of this idea makes my heart beat faster. My work has developed and taken different directions over the past twenty years, but was originally inspired by insects. In the same way, I see the beauty in these tiny and delicate, but at the same time immensely strong and ...

Phillip Flockhart - STATEMENT It has been said of my work Spanish Radio Interview 2005 that is is very ecclectic. This is true but I find the world and life so rich in texture, colour and drama and dare I say ecclectic in its amazing diversity, that I fail to see how I could respond as an artist any other way than I do. Having said this, I must add that my art philosophy is actually always present in the content of my work, although themes come and go and reflect other areas of my life- for instance I have been a street drugs worker since 1976 and an art educator facilitator in formal education and in the wider community for many years and these experiences have coloured and influenced the themes of my art- yet if examined the content of the work remains as it has for 35 years now- the attempt to disseminate the picure plane, with colour, real time space CollageRelief, imagery or optical device perspectiveopto-kinetism, to reveal the magic that lays beyond .... I believe that this is what Marc Rothko meant when he said that his paintings invited the viewer to step within the work ......... for when we ...
