Marble Torso
Marble Torso

I was interested in the contrast of the beautiful softness of the backbone on one side of the sculpture and the blade-like sharpness on the other.
The block of marble was from a funerary monument that had been demolished. It makes me happy to reuse materials and give life to discarded things.
The white of the marble is contrasted with the Welsh slate base.
Private collection.
