About

This sculpture of a cloud form is carved from light grey veined white marble into an abstracted modern shape that is polished and made smooth to the touch. The cloud rests on a smooth cylindrical plinth carved from black marble, veined lightly with grey and white.

Canadian sculptor Douglas Robinson has lived and worked in Pietrasanta, Italy, since 1979. He studied art and sculpture at the Ontario College of Art and Design, the University of Guelph and in Italy. Many of Robinson’s sculptures can function as either indoor or outdoor pieces. His work has been exhibited in Italy, France, Germany, London, Montréal and Prince Edward County, Ontario. His primary materials are limestone, travertine and marble.

"A chisel and hammer trail bringing forth the echo of bones and plants and animals, the curvature of life unexplored. Only the place between what you have made and what you wish to make seems unfamiliar, uncharted. But not for long. From the marrow of sheltering caves to the bone harp gasp of the Taj Mahal we move with stone to sculptures of the structurally unannounced." Douglas Robinson
