Statement

Organic abstraction for gardens, public spaces and interiors.

Natural marble of deep color. Olive wood from my own trees.

Translucent white statuario.

No, not white, I must add color. I paint, blend, scratch, and texture the sculpture until it is completely resolved, not as a marble sculpture, but as a work of art. Additive and reductive, constantly carving, adding stone, cutting, painting, refinement.

Singular personalities carved into stone. Unique figures, made in our contemporary 21st century world out the oldest and most traditional of sculptural materials. Figurative in the ancient tradition, yet as contemporary as the anime my children watch on their computers, pads and phones.

This is humorous, satiric work, but deeply serious.

Vita

After studying at UC Santa Cruz, in California, I came to Pietrasanta, Italy, for what I thought would be a year of carving marble near the Carrara marble quarries. Many years later, I am still working in Pietrasanta, being cofounder and principal at Studio Pescarella, in Pietrasanta.  I've had the good fortune to work in marble alongside many of the same colleagues for more than 20 years.
