North / South Dialogue, 2008-2009

Marble, 114cm x 80cm x 197cm (45” x 31” x 78”)

(... all images are studio shots taken at Studio Pescarella in Italy.)


In this work the backs of 2 figures are carved out of a grey Italian marble. The imagery is sourced from archaic Greece. The figures are face-to-face but not eye-to-eye, expressing the always-difficult dialogue – the human dynamic of trying to understand the other.
