PAUL VANSTONE

 
 

Paul Vanstone's sculptural practice is rooted in a preoccupation marble and discovering its surprising properties when worked; stone that appears to move as silk, shimmers with light like a shallow pool or swallows it like the deepest well. Sourcing stone from all over the world - Indian rainforest green, Himalayan grey, Iranian and Turkish Onyx, exquisite Carrara marble - Paul considers each mined section individually to best manipulate its unique properties, highlighting the grains and discovering its form. The resulting sculptures are sensual and human despite their hardness, and nearly impossible not to touch!
