LEDs light the sculpture to show the often missed translucency of marble. Enfolded, Wing Series, hand carved statuario marble and chinese ink, H 19.5 x W 8 x D 3 inches
Jyl Bonaguro is a self taught sculptor specializing in carving Italian marble sculptures by hand. Often working spontaneously, Bonaguro’s decidedly modern approach to the ancient art of stone carving diverges from the formal academic approach, revealing the raw stone in select areas, leaving sections untouched and natural, reminiscent of fragments excavated by archaeologists. The wing is embraced as a symbol of change that represents the aspiration of the soul towards a higher condition.
