Sculpture Of Force of Nature by Lorenzo Quinn-“After having seen the ravaged coast of Thailand
and the Hurricane that affected the Southern States I decided to create a sculpture dedicated to Mother Nature, “This would be reminiscent of the early statues made as peace offerings to the Gods in the hope of quenching their anger.” ” Quinn explains on his website.
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.’
