Peter Glenn Oakley

Peter Glenn Oakley skillfully re-creates impermanent items—bars of soap, Styrofoam containers, egg cartons—out of marble, transforming the otherwise ordinary into beautiful and permanent objects, all with a wink toward the irony in doing so.  Oakley developed his carving skills working as a stonemason, making grave markers and memorials before turning to sculpture. In his hand, the marble sculpture becomes a solid ghost of what it represents—full of physical presence, but missing the functionality of the object.
