A Solid Wardrobe Collection of Clothes Carved Out of Marble

It’s near impossible to not be impressed by these stone carvings by Alex Seton. The Sydney based artist can make marble do his bidding so well that it takes nearly life-like forms. Images of these carvings could very well pass off as those for real clothes, had their origins of stone not been explicitly stated.

The best part is of course the detail and how life like the folds, the creases and the curves come to be. Alex works mostly with Carrara marble, a white or blue-grey marble that is quarried at the city of Carrara in Tuscany, Italy. The artist is represented by Sulivan+Strumpf Fine Art Gallery in Sydney and the Jan Murphy Gallery in Brisbane.
