A8, STATUARIO PURO MARBLE 2012

This sculpture is an extremely fine shell of marble balancing on two points no bigger than your fingertips. It is as thin as 2 millimeters in cross-section in some places, making the marble almost transparent. The two lines that determine the shape are going in opposite directions, only meeting for a brief instant to create this shape. As the work is constantly in danger of breaking, it asks questions about the precarious nature of our human experience and the short-lived moments of beauty that it consists of.
