About gallery

 
Russia’s first virtual sculpture gallery ART-Prostranstvo has been founded in May 2008. To bring forward the modern sculpture, we have invented such an art space that would unite artists representing various schools and trends, while attracting the focus to the modern sculpture and extending the boundaries of its perception.
 
ART-Prostranstvo is the territory that does have boundaries, for we are just in a sculpture art-floor.  However its boundaries may be blurred: we are open for many artists, for their styles and for various generations of sculptors. We are looking forward to communicating, sharing experience and receiving estimations of our work. 
 
We have created a virtual exhibition that makes you dive into the atmosphere of real being in a museum. Three halls are open for you to browse as long as you wish, picking up the best of works for your collection and interior. The ‘rules of browsing’ are described in the Virtual Exhibitions page. 
 
ART-Prostranstvo sculptors are working using various styles and materials: bronze, coal clay, ceramics, wood, and more. Each artist has his own way into the art and each sculpture has its own history.
 
The works are currently presented in various museums and private collections across Russia, USA and West Europe.
 
Sculpture cannot exist as a single piece. It is a live and plastic art that seeks to be in the spotlight and to be discussed. Discussions and opinions expressed by professional sculptures and art critics may be found at a special page. They help define the style and artistic value of the presented works.
 
Art lovers will be able to have a look at works by both well-known sculptors and young artists. The exposition will be updated from time to time.
 
Michelangelo Buonarroti used to say: “I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don't need». As for us, we chop off the tail of banality and dilettantism. 
 
We are happy to welcome you in our ART-Prostranstvo virtual gallery of sculpture!
