Dramatically angled sheets of steel coated in white cast elegant shadows in this striking outdoor sculpture by Canadian artist, Rocco Turino.
“Both my parents are makers; my mother was a seamstress who made bespoke wedding dresses and my father was a builder who also did amateur stone/wood carving. They definitely had an influence in opening my eyes to the possibility of making a career out of crafting beautiful things.” Rocco Turino
