‘Now and Forever’ is a collection of Lorenzo Quinn’s unique new artworks, never seen before by the public, being exhibited along with some of his past works. Behind his artworks, lies the philosophy that everything we say and do in life has a ripple effect and forever alters the course of events. Lorenzo wishes to be a positive wave in an ocean that is at times dark and stormy, but when we join our hands for good we can be the wave of positive change.

Over the past two decades, Lorenzo’s work has evolved in style and in the usage of different mediums, but in essence the emotions and messages behind the work have remained unvaried. Through his art, Lorenzo brings people together, by highlighting what unites us rather than what divides us. He is a firm believer in the power of art to reach through to people in unique and undeviating ways. This collection expresses the course which Lorenzo’s work is undertaking along with its evolution over the years.

An Italian sculptor influenced by the likes of Michelangelo, Bernini, and Rodin; Lorenzo Quinn is a leading figure in contemporary figurative sculpture. Exhibited internationally, his monumental public art and smaller, more intimate pieces transmit his passion for eternal values and authentic emotions. He is best known for expressive recreations of human hands. "I wanted to sculpt what is considered the hardest and most technically challenging part of the human body", he asserts. "The hand holds so much power – the power to love, to hate, to create, to destroy", Lorenzo adds.
