ALEX RANE

Alex Rane was born in 1986 in New York City; he lives and works in Carrara.

Rane began his formal art training in 2009 when he started his Bachelor’s of Fine Art at Lyme College of Fine Art in Connecticut. Wanting to specifically study marble sculpture, he searched for courses in the United States but was unable to find adequate training. It was then he decided to move to Carrara where he studied at the Academia di Belle Arti.

Choosing to work primarily by hand rather than relying on the use of stone carving machines and robots, Rane feels these efforts are revealed in the end results of his sculptures. His influences include the great masters of the Renaissance and in addition ancient ideas of spirituality. He takes these influences and combines them with modern philosophies and his own personal views of spirituality. He believes that through this combination of inspirations as well as the process of creating the works by hand, his sculptures become physical manifestations of the human psyche and of manual labor.

Rane has exhibited internationally and his sculptures are held in numerous collections worldwide including private museums in the United States and Spain. In addition his work has been recognized through his receipt of scholarships and his participations in symposia.
