We’re talking about classic Lorenzo Quinn sculpture territory now, the renown contemporary artist with a passion for creating and manifesting bronzed works of formidable art; each openly symbolic and well versed in reality.
‘You Can’t Eat Gold’ is Quinn’s latest tour de sculptured force, which suggests that, as members of the human race, we insist on consuming everything which is good for our own ends, there are some objects too pure and precious which are simply indigestible.
