This sculptural painting was inspired by the marble found in quarries between Carrara and Massa in the Apuan Alps region of Tuscany.
I have always been endlessly fascinated by the gifts our earth has given us: art made from natural stone, metamorphic rock, gemstones, and the clay that’s needed to form in-between.
I began using plaster & premixed concrete as one of my primary mediums almost 2 years ago now.
When I began focusing on embedding different minerals + materials + live components to my concrete mixes, I felt I was really tapping into my unique artistic foundation. It was something of my own. A textural experience within each new project that felt closer and closer to respecting and representing the indescribable beauty of natural stone.
Architecture has always been a motivator for my artwork— the past few months I’ve felt closer to rightfully building the trapped ideas I have in my head, that I have not yet been able to achieve with my hands.
Practice and patience. Just like most timelines in our life, pressure builds and we learn the beauty is within the ever changing growth of the environment we are in.
if marble formed under intense, profound pressure and heat: so can I.
