Carving Italian marble by hand with a hammer and chisel, Jyl Bonaguro creates fragmented figurative sculptures that fuse ancient techniques with modern ideas. Her artistic intention is to reveal how countless civilizations have risen and fallen to be only reduced to ruins.
Her journey as a self taught sculptor will take her to Italy this summer to work and film at the famous marble quarries in Carrara where Michelangelo himself sculpted. Motion Filmworks will be documenting this journey and is proud to release this first glimpse into the world of hand carving.
