“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” – Michelangelo

We share an appreciation for all art forms but we hold a special place in our hearts for sculpture. There’s something poetic about the way a raw, gritty substance is transformed into a polished masterpiece that feels uniquely aligned with the work we do.

Elevating a design by incorporating sculpture to create a truly unique experience for our clients, is a concept we believe can be utilized in all spaces, regardless of size or strata, and one of our very favorite sculptors is Park Eun Sun.

 Born in South Korea, master sculptor, Park Eun Sun, is a man dedicated to his craft and his award-winning pieces have been on display all over the world. We recently had the pleasure of hosting over 100 taste-makers and design enthusiasts at an Art of the World cocktail reception honoring his latest exhibit, From the Italian Quarries, and we hope you enjoy this peek into the grand evening!

Guests enjoyed cocktails from Macallan and light bites from Armandos while learning about the contemporary sculptor’s monumental geometric, dichotomized, and expertly fissured artworks in Italian marble and granite. With eye-catching pieces on par with Europe’s greatest piazzas and Houston’s latest skyscrapers, to more modest interior displays; Park Eun Sun was on hand to meet party-goers and discuss his heartfelt collection.

Special thanks to the Art of the World Gallery for hosting this fantastic and inspiring event.
