(1) The application of sculpture in waterscape can enrich the expression form of the waterscape, and create a beautiful landscape environment. The expression of waterscape is mainly displayed through static and dynamic. From a dynamic perspective, waterscape can exist independently through fountains, flowing water and other forms. , But this way of existence is sometimes affected by factors such as terrain, and it tends to be monotonous. Incorporating sculpture into dynamic waterscapes such as fountains, and making sculptures as the internal structure of waterscapes, using the sculpture’s rich body as the carrier of flowing and spouting water bodies can enrich the expression of waterscapes and form a wave of water effects. The sculptures are set up beside the static water features such as lakes and ponds and at the exits of some dynamic water features. Combining artificial art with natural water bodies can beautify the water features and create a gorgeous and elegant landscape environment.
(2) The combination of waterscape and sculpture can enrich the expression form of sculpture. The “expression form” of sculpture solves the problem of sculpture form. The factors involved in the form include modeling methods, materials, and molding methods. The materials used in sculpture are mainly hard materials such as wood, stone, and metal. There are two types of modeling: concrete and abstract. The combination of water features and sculptures can enrich the expression of sculpture. First of all, the combination of water features and sculptures can enrich the application of sculpture materials. Water, as a liquid substance, can be summarized as soft materials. The combination of soft materials and hard materials strengthens the contrast of materials and enriches the artistic effect of sculpture. Secondly, the combination of water features and sculpture can enhance the expressive force of sculpture and make the sculpture more attractive. Most of the sculptures are presented statically, while the water features can be presented in gushing and flowing dynamics. The combination of movement and static can make the sculpture more vitality and attract more people’s attention.
(3) The application of sculpture in waterscapes can enrich the spiritual connotation of waterscapes and enhance the cultural level of waterscapes. As one of the essential conditions for human survival, water is closely related to human production and life. Whether it is the ingrained concept of “feng shui” in the Chinese, or the chanting and admiration of the writers and inkers on the water landscape gardens such as the West Lake, where “the water is bright and the sun is good”, it shows that water has formed a rich water in the development of human history. culture. But this water culture is macro, and the water fountain sculpture is a general, abstract summary of water. The general waterscape landscape does not have specific cultural connotations and sculptures with a certain thematic significance. The intervention of waterscapes can give more specific cultural elements to waterscapes, and enrich the spiritual and cultural expertise of waterscapes, such as the Four River Fountain designed by Bellini, sculptures, and waterscapes. The combination gives concrete water connotations. The fountain symbolizes the four heavenly rivers (Danube, Nile, Platte, and the Ganges). In addition to giving people visual and auditory beauty, landscapes also provide rich cultural connotations.
