Inspired by the ongoing relationship between creativity and the sculptural act of transformation, Domenico Ludovico's work is based on the use of found and recycled raw organic material like the Carrara marble found inTuscany.

Ludovico is interested in this process of discovery. Through his skilled technique he sculpts, chisels, remodels and experiments, allowing emotive and existential figures to emerge from the material. The artist works with and against the stone to capture and take hold of the intrinsic forms that each one infers, giving status to an initial suggestion.

Working among the quarries favoured by Michelangelo, Ludovico's works are based on an art historical conversation between the past and the present, deploying both traditional methods and state of the art technology to convey timeless experiences.

Domenico Ludovico noted for his expertise in stone carving Ludovico has – since graduation from the Academy of Fine Art in Carrara, a city famed for its marble - continuously collaborated with some of the most prestigious art galleries and artist studios in the world. His precious pieces were exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London and at Art Basel - Scope Miami art fair recently were they sold out immediately, and they are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Potenza, Italy.
