Goat Head Stele, 2020<br />

Horned Being, (Bestia Umana) 2020<br />

(enquire)<br />

Bardiglio Marble, Portuguese Marble,<br />

70cm x 60cm x 184cm / 27.6” x 23.6” x 72.5”<br />

The horns of this sculpture are fitted with tapered pins, so that they can be removed easily.<br />

In this sculpture I am pulling the animal head literally out of the block. The sculpture stands as<br />

high as a human and the horns could be like long arms lifting to create a creature that is over<br />

towering. The sculpture is an “awesome” reminder of the human will, being a wild thing, something<br />

we should care for with “awe”.<br />

The Shield, 2020<br />

White Italian Marble,<br />

150cm x 12cm x 183cm / 59” x 4.7” x 72”<br />

“The Shield” is carved of a particularly strong white Italian<br />

marble from the Canaloni quarry above Carrara. Its grain is so<br />

tight, that it rings like a bell. It is mounted on a tapered pin that<br />

allows it to be free standing with a stainless plate fastened beneath<br />

the surface. It swivels easy when moved by the touch of<br />

a human hand. The Shield is a continuation of a series of sculptures<br />

that are part of my essential body of work. It refers back<br />

to a seashell, the sand dollar, found on the shore. It’s detailing<br />

reflects on a core and two halves, thus creating a presence that<br />

is fragile, yet embracing us as a thing.<br />

BESTIA ROMANA, 2009<br />

(enquire)<br />

Studio Installation,<br />

Marble, Travertine<br />

96cm x 100cm x 183cm / 38” x 39” x 72”<br />

This Beast stays at a distance from us, while luring us through its strange beauty. It proudly<br />

carries its horns in defense, like a snake surrounding its head that is animated and alive.<br />

The sculpture is about our need to engage with the other and the seductive tensions that<br />

surrounds this encounter.<br />

DESERT MOONS, 2013<br />

(enquire)<br />

3 elements, Egyptian marble;<br />

Each about 32cm/ 12” high and about 180cm / 6’ in diameter<br />

These Shield-like shapes recreate an environment that allows the viewer to stroll<br />

among them like on a walk in the desert, the ground this stone comes from, the<br />

Egyptian desert. In their scale, they won’t allow us to observe them in their entirety<br />

once we are up close, we become an element next to them. The surface is a pale<br />

sand color with dark orange ripples running through. They encourage our “walk<br />

through the desert”, reflecting on being immersed among things made for consideration.<br />

They are an invitation to dream.<br />

Black Moth, 2018<br />

Black Spanish marble, 66cm x 38cm x 24cm / 26” x 15” x 9.5”<br />

A moth is a creature of the night, that either merges with the surface it finds itself on, or starts unfolding,<br />

soaring into the night to find light. The moth is like an origami folded piece of paper. Yet the surface<br />

bears marks and scratches alluding to it being a tender shield on the wall, before being the delicate<br />

creature of the night.<br />
