Contemporary Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn is a leading figurative sculptor whose work is inspired by such masters as Michelangelo and Rodin.
Quinn is best known for expressive recreations of human hands.“I wanted to sculpt what is considered the hardest and most technically challenging part of the human body’, he asserts. ‘The hand holds so much power – the power to love, to hate, to create, to destroy.” Quinn’s creative ideas spark quickly into life: ‘The inspiration comes within a millisecond’, he says, as he is driven to sculpt by observing life’s everyday energy.Yet a finished project takes months to realize, and it has to carry clear meaning. Quinn’s work appears in many private collections throughout the world and has been exhibited internationally during the past 20 years.
