Biography

Pablo Atchugarry is internationally renowned for his monumental public sculptures. After experimenting with a variety of materials early in his career, Atchugarry turned to marble as his primary medium. Simultaneously abstract and numinous, massive and delicately carved, his sculptures are reflections on the intervention of the spiritual in everyday life, intended to channel spiritual energies into the spaces they occupy and invite contemplation of the divine. Atchugarry is influenced by the seminal work of Constantin Brancusi and Henry Moore, and often likened to Michelangelo in his similar devotion to working with his own hands (as opposed to the workshop practices of several of his contemporaries.)
