Rhea Marmentini - Sculpture Statement
         
Rhea Marmentin with Rebirth sculpture.   Transforming stone into metaphysical realities has always struck me as a magical process that continually grows it's monumentality as the stone is sculpted. The stones I use are minerals that have densified over vast scales of geological time so I think of sculpting as a silent way of making music with that density of time. The concrete nature of my work provides many opportunities for converting disorder into grace as I re-position the stone back into the rythem of metamorphosis of millions of years.
