Michelangelo would visit the Carrara quarries to personally select the blocks of marble from which to extract his works. Yes, because each block of marble already contains the potential that will be realized through an act. In the blocks that Michelangelo selected, he already saw his David, his Piet??, his Moses.In the same way we see in the Carrarese monoliths our rectangles, squares, hexagons, octagons, and small squares. They are there waiting for us, ready to be stripped of their heavy marble clothing to come to light, in a process that is more Socratic than productive.Praise to the most classic of classics.
SquareThe square is a circle with angles. It is imperfect perfection, irregular regularity, abstract concreteness. It dominates the world of parallelograms and its linear formula communicates only one thing: harmony. For this reason a marble square is the sublimation of the sublime itself. It is everything you could ever want. It is everything you could ever want.
