"When your medium spans limestone, travertine and marble, these stones speak to you with their distinctive material sense of forgiveness and resistance. Their geologic history bring forward separate crystalline structures that 'speak' directly to the hand and eye. With a stone in hand, you go far into the past in order to create for the future, you become part of the whole earth matrix between what is solid and what is fluid. Then you take the solid and carve something fluid again. You are contemporary, but you pay homage also to the Neolithic, the perennial archaic."
Douglas Robinson, Canadian sculptor, has lived and worked in Pietrasanta since 1979
