poetry of stone

If there is a common thread running through Nick’s work, it is an elegance, a paring down of detail and a fascination with organic shapes and tactile quality.

Nick Santoro’s sculptures are the work of a master stoneworker, demonstrating very fine use of tools and materials to produce exquisite forms.

Beauty. Form. Voluptuousness. Evolutionary attractors. Nick’s attractors delight with the Great Worm … churning and twisting and exhaling in her earthly sea.
