Artsuite - Peter Oakley - Stack 4 (Box 12) - Original sculpture out of marble.  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.

"The simple vessel is one of the first objects humans ever made with their hands. It is a very ancient image for us.

As generic and invisible as styrofoam takeout boxes are, there is a formal beauty in the surfaces of these vessels, and a subtle architecture in their lines.

As we interact with them, stacking them, etc, we create ever newer iterations of this architecture, new happenstance compositions that beg to be appreciated. There is a quiet and pure flow of line and surface, which somehow stays out of sight.

My work in this series is to simply show that beauty. I work by hand in natural materials to translate the image I see."
