'Sienna'

John Martini

2006 - metal: steel

Font Size: AAA

The artist's inspiration for 'Sienna' occurred during a trip to Italy. Upon visiting an exhibition of Etruscan art in an archaeological museum in Sienna, Martini created sketches of the works on exhibit--drawings that later became a source of inspiration for 'Sienna'. However Martini prefers for the viewer to interpret their own meaning behind a work of art based on their own associations--challenging the viewer to interpret the sculpture in relation to their own lives. Martini notes that “people always have great stories,” and he loves to hear the stories his sculptures conjure up.
