The Artist - Nicola Axe
Continually excited by the challenges of carving stone, after 10 years I feel Iíve barely scratched the surface of possibilities. My large scale abstract heads carved in Portland stone have been developed from my love of the serene Buddha heads and Cycladic art, added to that my early fascination for Modiglianiís elongated forms. I feel they provide a serene focal point for peaceful contemplation in any landscape. I find inspiration in natural forms like sea shells. The Abalone Shell Iíve had in mind for a while, showing a majestic, upright, swirling form with contrasting surface texture.
