Michael Binkley has carved this original fine art abstract sculpture from a variety of white marble from the famous town of Carrara, Italy. The marble is mostly white, with striations of taupe. Binkley has given the sculpture a smooth matte finish which gives the stone the ability to successfully hold shadows. The marble is permanently affixed to the highly polished granite base with a hidden metal pin.
Binkley is playing with the illusion of fabric with this sculpture. It seems as though the hard white marble is pliable, like a cotton sheet blowing in a breeze with little ripples of wrinkles.I would like more information about this sculpture
