We can shape materials in any manner, but do we hear what they say? What is the quantic interaction between our cells and the environment?
Pax Vaira interacts with the stone and gives it form that is result of a dialogue with it. Pax aims for "universal art", art that delivers universal messages, a bridge between the past and the future, and embraces all cultures.
His figures are contemporary and yet recogniseable in shape and in message.
Pax works and exhibits moslty in Italy and in UK. He works for private and public commissions and his statues are in every continent.
Pax has learnt to carve stones from artisans in Italy, India, Vientam and Canada and carves directly the stone without a model. He has not used power chisels or robots yet.
Before Pax, there was a young lawyer in the City of London who arrived from Puglia and climbed the corporate ladder as high as he could, he stopped on a high terrace and looked around, and decided he rather jump than keep on climbing that Babele tower.
Pax jumped into his dream and he is now a sculptor....and a few other things for those lucky enough to know him
