Inspired by masters such as Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin, Italian artist Lorenzo is famed for his striking hand sculptures.
As the son of the actor Anthony Quinn, Lorenzo split his childhood between Italy and the USA. He studied at the American Academy of the Fine Arts in New York before enjoying a brief career as an actor.
After turning his hand to sculpture, he gained notable commissions, including The Tree of Life, which was created for the United Nations and issued as a stamp in 1993. In 1994, he created a likeness of Saint Anthony for the Basilica del Santo in Padua, which was blessed by the Pope in front of a 35,000-strong crowd.
Lorenzo prides himself on sculpting the most technically challenging part of the human body. For him, hands symbolise the power we have as humans to impact both our lives and those of people around us. He explains: “The hand holds so much power: the power to love, create, hate and destroy.”
From the marble masterpieces of Ancient Greece to the figures of Michelangelo's Renaissance, the art of sculpting has truly stood the test of time.
This October we are celebrating all things sculpture in the gallery with stunning works from Dale Chihuly and Lorenzo Quinn. We will also be unveiling an exciting new sculptor to Castle Fine Art, Roxy Winterburn. Come to the gallery to find out more about Roxy and her beautiful animal sculptures.
Currently exhibited at our flagship Mailbox gallery, Possibilità presents a major body of artwork by Italian contemporary artist Lorenzo Quinn. Featuring the launch of brand-new works, Quinn revisits his most fundamental motif – the human figure – in his ongoing exploration of human experience and his visual representation of abstract, universal values. Possibilità reveals the full scope of his artistic project, journeying from the traditional methods used to make each sculpture, to the potentiality of his future visions.
Every artwork displayed at the Mailbox gallery was created at Quinn’s own sculpture foundry, where the artist uses the millennia-old ‘lost-wax’ casting process to create his works in bronze and aluminium. The finished collection echoes the tradition and history attached to this casting process and the technical mastery it involves.
Contemporary Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn is a leading figurative sculptor whose work is inspired by such masters as Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin. Exhibited internationally, his monumental public art and smaller, more intimate pieces transmit his passion for eternal values and authentic emotions. We are delighted to invite you to view a selection of his works at our gallery.
