Canadian Sculptures' Society

Giovanni John Porretta

Artist Statement

My life has been meant to serve one purpose and that being to create sculpture and by so doing hopefully communicate to others what I see, feel and strive to achieve. Sculpture to me is an infinite circle which in itself is redundant and yet I choose to follow the path.
