sculptured painting (plural sculptured paintings)

  1. (art) A painting in which any of several materials are used to add relief in a third dimension
    • "With these abstractions, I am introducing a new generation of art called, Sculptured Paintings. They consist of layered hues coating an undulating epoxy form that displays the various pleasing properties of color. When hung together, their smooth, repetitive contours draw one's attention to the simplicity of form and energy. Based on nature's most economical sphere, the effect of light on these surfaces emphasizes the beauty of the round shape". - [Mym Tuma]
    • "Tuma's work is thus allied with the organic forms of modernism as well as the later developments as they move away from the two dimensional canvas toward shaped forms that exist in actual space, namely what Tuma calls her sculptured painting."
