Overview

Innovative and unclassifiable are terms that could be used to describe the work of Sophia Vari, a Greek artist who has an outstanding place in the modern classical sculpture arena. A perpetual scholar and researcher, Vari has never ceased to evolve throughout the years—moving from paintings to three-dimensional sculpture in bronze, then in marble. From the sensuality and voluptuousness of her first statuettes, she evolved into abstract shapes of colossal scale. This monograph reveals the trajectory of an artist who embodies influences of old and new masters, as well as the vestiges of far away cultures.
