|"FROM ZERO TO THE SUN"
Sculptor, George Tkabladze, comes to Artemisia Gallery from the Republic of Georgia. His intimate, abstract stone sculptures are fraught with personal observation, delving into the age-old unanswered questions of existentialism. Tkabladze's fascination with stone derives not only from its history as a piece of the larger whole, but also due to the fact that as it has an "unforgiving nature, it becomes a challenge to bring it to a new life." Mixing a variety of media and technique (stone, wood and steel) Tkabladze identifies ideas of past, present and future, thereby formulating his internal creative process for self-discovery.
