For over thirty years, Mauro Mori (b. 1965, Cremona, Italy) has built a cohesive body of work spanning both functional and non-functional pieces carved in stone or wood, or molded in metal. The artist hand-sketches and sculpts his pieces, drawing inspiration from Nature and the timeless beauty of simple, archetypal forms found throughout artistic periods spanning from the Cycladic and Primitive Arts to the twentieth-century minimalist work of artists including Brancusi or Noguchi among others.
This work is from the artists' ‘Portraits’ series. The works embody his continuous investigation of organic and sensuous forms carved in natural material using the traditional sculpture techniques of subtraction.
