Dreams, Peace & Art made Sculpture – by Lorenzo Quinn

For Quinn, sculpture is primarily an art of communication, a medium through which he aims to help people evolve further in tolerance, understanding and harmony.

‘I make art for myself and for people who wish to come along for a ride through my dreams’, he says.

 

 

“How we live our own lives is of the utmost importance, and most of my work has to do with values and emotions”

Among the artists whose influence Quinn cites are Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin. His creative ideas spark quickly into life: ‘The inspiration comes within a millisecond’, he says, as he is driven to sculpt by observing life’s everyday energy.

Yet a finished project takes months to realise, and it has to carry clear meaning. Quinn usually conceives each work in writing, and the poetic text is ultimately displayed with the sculpture, as an integral part of the piece, not merely explanation.

 

 

“Life is a wonderful endless journey… if you know how to live it.”

Lorenzo Quinn
