The work of Giancarlo Lepore is vast and poetic in it’s choice of forms and materials. The body is his favourite subject and this is modelled in leather, marble, bronze, clay, iron... Each of Giancarlo’s sculptures express a wide range of dynamics, whether they be flat, elongated or twisted, each one evokes a sense of lightness. Long slender hulls reaching to the sky, the voice of nature is always present.
