Wren Sharp Gallery, Key West
Jim Racchi, Key Wester and founder of Sculpture Key West,
studied sculpture in Cleveland and Italy. His work ranges
from the more traditional, hinting at his classical education
in stone carving in Florence, to the playful and even abstract.
He writes, “I draw with steel, forming the figure
directly in space.” Solares Hill writes “he
uses a line of steel as if he were sketching a figure with
a pencil, adding more lines until the contour of the figure
is fleshed out and wonderfully familiar.”
