The Artist at Work

The artist lives and works in Sydney’s inner western suburbs. His outdoor workshop in Enmore is home to many works-in-progress and giant chunks of marble, sandstone and other raw materials.

‘Over the past 35 years I have had an obsession with the search for perfection. My studio is my sanctuary where I turn inanimate objects into objects full of life. Here I stare at the night sky like Galileo did before me and dream.’ – VINCE VOZZO
