About the artist
Comprised of Roy Santo and RJ Stone, Santo & Stone are a collaborative team of artists. Together they design and create wall hanging sculptures using materials such as marble, cast metals, glass and iridescent paints.
Their works are inspired in part by the Greek Key, a meandros symbol dating back to ancient Greece, and found in the architecture, sculpture and decorative arts of myriad independent civilizations, both throughout history and contemporarily. They work from the conviction that this continuous pattern is recognized by our ancestral memory and understood by all humankind as a universal symbol of infinity and eternal flow.
Reinterpreting the symbol, the pair create minimalist works which use symmetry, order and proportion to express different forms of enlightenment including truth, order, simplicity and harmony. Focusing on process, techniques, and materials, they experiment with paints and methods of casting metals to create unique colors and texture with master craftsmanship. Santo & Stone craft subtle minimalistic work with meticulously clarity, which allow the viewer to respond to the essence of the universal forms and materials used.
