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:

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 ...

Youri Messen-Jaschin - From 1958 - 1962 his artistic studies lead him to the higher national school of fine arts student of Professor Arno Roberto Cami and to the Practical school of the Sorbonne, division of social sciences history of art, Professor Pierre Francastel in Paris. From 1962 until 1965, he went to the School of fine arts in Lausanne. He worked with the engraver and painter Ernest Pizzotti. A<> in 1964 with his kinetic glass and acrylic sculptures. He worked two years at the aEURoeCenter of contemporary engravingaEUR in Geneva. Then, he worked in Zurich, where he broadened his pictorial perspective with the painter Friederich Kuhn thru experience of the circle in the face. From 1968 until 1971, he acted at the University of HAPgskolan fAPr design Konsthantwerk in GAPteborg, where he created researches of textile kinetic objects. In 1967, he met at an exhibition in GAPteborgs Konsthall JesAos - Rafael Soto, Carlos Cruz-Diez and Julio Le Parc. Speaking with these artists, he discovered to be fascinated by optical art. He decided to devote all his research to kinetic art. An extended stay in GAPteborg gave him the opportunity to constantly evolve in movement and ...

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. ...

Kichung Lizee - After coming to this country from Korea in the mid 60's to study art, among the many forms of Western art that I was introduced to, Abstract Expressionism interested me most. Currently I am in the process of synthesizing Eastern and Western approaches to art. Specifically, I'm adopting the techniques and materials of Eastern calligraphy to Western thematic material, my primary goal being to close the gap between East and West and reach for universal creativity. Eastern calligraphy I learned is a living and breathing spirit, rather than the dead and rigid tradition of thousands of years. It is uniquely a form that conveys the pulsation of life energy. Through it, one can experience all aspects of the living spectrum. Eastern calligraphic form reveals the kind of life the artist has led, as well as foreshadowing the person one will become. It is the art form that manifests the self as a way of life or philosophy of life. It is a powerful art form that operates through direct intuition. As an artist I rely heavily on creative intuition. Moving with changes in the stream of consciousness, my creative intuition somehow brings out the subconscious and superconscious through ...

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 ...

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 ...
