Matthew Simmonds Carves Ancient Architecture into Marble and Stone

British artist Matthew Simmonds has been well recognized for his sculptures for over 20 years now, having been recognized as the first prize winner of the Verona International Sculptor Symposium award in 1999. His pieces represent the ancient architecture of the Greeks and Romans, with their forms being represented in a way that captivates the eye and gives a different perspective from each viewpoint. The sculptures, done in marble and stone, seem to spring to life from the rock, bringing with them a sense of life and significant space.
