Vince Vozzo, New sculptures. The exhibition of selected works in marble, bronze and sandstone opens on Saturday 26 October from 3-5pm. On view until 6 November 2013.
Vince Vozzo is represented in private and Institutional collections in Australia, England, USA, and Asia including the Vizard Foundation Melbourne and the Mildura Regional Gallery Collection. Vince has been a regular finalist in the Wynne Prize and is one of an exclusive number of artists in “the decade club” who have shown with Sculpture by the Sea every year for the last 10 years. Vozzo has been a recipient of numerous coveted awards and residencies including the 1999 Hill-End Artist in Residence.
In 2012 A Survey Exhibition was held at Orange Regional Gallery and in 2008 a survey exhibition, Vince Vozzo: Mule Head Testa Dura, was mounted at the Casula Power House.
Celebrated for his exquisite marble, sandstone and bronze figures Vozzo often works on a grand scale, creating voluptuous sensual forms with great technical skill using tools and techniques unchanged for centuries.
Like the famous Australian sculptors, Lyndon Dadswell and Raynor Hoff, Vince Vozzo is part of the great line of sculptors associated with East Sydney Technical College. Like those great masters who came before him, Vince Vozzo sculpts the nude with a generosity of form and unapologetic strength, which is particularly powerful in his female subjects. The overall impression is one of rhythm and grace that owes something to the sculpture of Constantin Brancusi, an artist Vozzo admires.
