Marc Quinn and Figurative Sculpture
What is Figurative Art?
Figurative art describes artwork derived from real life, and therefore represents people, animals or objects. The term figurative art is often taken to mean work that illustrates the human form but it is not exclusively about figures.
Artwork can be divided into the categories of figurative and abstract, abstract art being abstracted from a figurative source.
Roy Lichtenstein made a series of images of a bull, which demonstrate the process from figurative to abstract art (see Related Links at the bottom of this page to see images).
