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.

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 ...
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 ...
Debbi Chan - I am going to do an updated artist's statement. But until I submit it you have a short temporary one. As an artist I an fullfilled and contend. But at the same time I seek more , absorb more, and enjoy more. Art fills and fullfills me..I am always being an artist. My eyes see art always. This is not a hobby that I partake of when time suits. Art feeds me. Art consoles me. And being prolific it also takes my time. And for this I am thankful that i listened to my inner self. I am thankful for a following that grows by the minute. I enjoy you enjoying my portfolio. I also have come to realize that the coined phrase "starving artist" is a reality for some of us. But if you take another quote, my own , you will see that starving and rich pertain to material $. because of you the viewers , and because art is my life and my passion I can truly say that I AM RICH.. RICH WITH NO MONEY... and I can also say with truth that I am happy. I chose the path that allowed this rich life. There will continue ...
