About the artwork
A symbol that has become synonymous with Lorenzo Quinn's work is the human hand. "The reason I sculpt the hand is because I need to communicate in a universal language," he claims. Here, two hands come together in tight clutch across a void, forging an emotional connection that represents the passion of love.
About the artist
Lorenzo Quinn was born in Rome in 1966. Although he was raised in both the United States and Italy, it was in Italy where he discovered his love for art. Quinn can be described as a prodigy in the art world. Lorenzo's work is included in many impressive private collections throughout the world, which has lead to a prodigious amount of commissioned work. This includes being commissioned by the Vatican to sculpt the likeness of Saint Anthony. Many of Lorenzo's sculptures often featured the symbol that has become synonymous with Lorenzo's work - the human hand. "The reason I sculpt the hand is because I need to communicate in a universal language, especially since I exhibit in five continents. The use of this hand language helps me achieve this, creating a dialogue." Lorenzo seeks inspiration for his sculptures from everyday life and believes art should not be merely decorative but have meaning; transmit emotions, as well as being aesthetically well-balanced.
