After witnessing the destruction brought on by hurricanes in Thailand, the Southern U.S. and around the world, Italian sculptor Lorenzo Quinn (@lorenzoquinnartist) began creating a series of sculptures entitled ‘Forces of Nature’.
Made from bronze, stainless steel and aluminium, the sculptures, full of life and energy, depict mother nature hurtling planet earth around in circles.
The powerful and furious image is meant to remind us of the power of nature and what Quinn describes as our “false sense of security” towards it.
Quinn is best known for expressive recreations of human hands, with his latest works being displayed during Le Biennale in Venice.
Art historian and curator Consuelo Císcar Casabán describes Quinn’s work as profound, spiritual and existential because it deals with the passions we experience as humans and the questions we pose in the silence about ultimate truths.
