Summary

Showcasing the work of Australian sculptor, Vince Vozzo, this beautiful book charts the journey of a second-generation Italian kid from the Western suburbs of Sydney ' from dyslexic, cartoon-obsessed school boy to sand sculptor on Bondi beach, to art student, and, finally, prolific and acclaimed artist. In a career spanning three decades, Vozzo has exhibited in 32 solo exhibitions and produced thousands of artworks in different mediums. He has featured in numerous group exhibitions; most notably Sydney's Sculpture by the Sea, where his magnificent sculpture has loomed large over the coastal horizon more 13 times to date. His work has been included in 36 prize exhibitions and with eight selections in the prestigious Wynne Prize, Vozzo holds the record for a sculptor in that competition. Vozzo's giant slabs of imported Italian marble form the basis for his most spectacular work, including The Last Desire, which is the largest piece of single-handedly carved marble in Australia. Vozzo is a unique Australian artist, whose work is majestic in its sheer size and physicality and poetic in its execution.
