FALLING APART

Stone Statue, Sculpture, Portrait Sculpture, Stone Sculpture, Emotional Sculpture, Figurative Stone Sculpture
A sculptural study of the emotional tsunami that hits everyone at some point in their lives.

The human face is the single most expressive entity in the known universe and is the most perfect subject matter for stone sculpture. Portrait sculpture in stone is far more difficult than bronze, the process of removing material rather than adding leaves no room for error, although dangerous, this spontaneity results in less contrived and naturally fluid sculpture.

Leaving the sculpture unfinished, emerging from the block is known as non-finito. This technique has been used throughout history, most notably by Michelangelo, it gives a less formal, more natural feel to the work and allows the viewer to perceive the origins of the sculpture.

Carved entirely by hand from Limestone.
