Dressed for Success

Lucy, Carrara Marble - 2013If Michelangelo would have known how sculpturing will evolve during the next almost 500 years, he would probably died of a heart attack before even finishing David… But that´s Zeitgeist and it´s important to go and try new things. Like Italian-trained sculptor Alasdair Thomson who almost exclusively works with marble. And in this case by creating a series of flowing garments. The elegance of this work is that a hard and cold material like marble seems to be so floating and delicate that it´s almost impossible to believe it´s made of stone. But Thomson handled this material so well, that the final works actually looks like the textile originals he borrowed from his friends to use them as models.
